Love your KLR + back injury = time to modify
Hey KLR lovers, first post but longtime lurker.
I bought a 2014 New edition KLR last June and suffered a back injury less than six weeks later. I have no plans to sell it, but even after the surgery, the ride is still a bit rough for long range. My son is returning from Okinawa next month and all we have been talking about is getting up in the hills of Virginia for a week or so and getting lost. I am forced to concede that my off road days are at an end, but is there anyone who has made the transition to a more street friendly KLR? I am 6'7 so there really isn't any other bike that rides the way a KLR does, even my DL1000 sits too aggressively for comfort (with risers).
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks and nice to meet everyone.
