Initial opinion on my new KLR
Been breaking in my new 2018 KLR and I wish a couple things on it were different. Great bike for what I mostly do ( gravel roads), but I wish Kawasaki would make two changes..
First change, give me a lower 1st gear for in the woods and deep sand, etc. I find negotiating obstacles with this ratio taxes the clutch and drive train too much.
Second, GIVE IT A 6th GEAR!! With all that torque on tap there's no reason why it won't handle an overdrive gear for the highway.. I think if Kawasaki did this they would then have the near perfect motorcycle..
