2013 KLR for sale, very original...$3500.00 OBO

I bought it new in 2015 from the Fat Alberts in Poteau, Oklahoma.
It is basically a 2015 in 2013 skin, LOL. 16,200 miles. Oil changed every 1500-2K miles. It has never been off road. Sprockets and chain replaced ~10K miles, It has a new tire on the rear and I am going to throw in a new tire for the front. I am located in South East of Oklahoma. It has never been wrecked, but it has fallen off of the kickstand twice, once on each side. No broken parts. Pictures will be added or emailed as soon as I get her washed up. Mom went into nursing home, priorities have shifted for me.

Thank you, Randy email randylyle111atyahoodotcom

In the back of your truck and on your front lawn, with LOCKS & chains depending on where you live.

In your local newspapers and on Craigs list. On local bulletin boards at your place of employment, grocery, hardware, farm & ranch supply stores & such.

Possibly the local motorcycle dealership on consignment sale or other consignment lots (with locks & chains)?

I won't pretend to know, but consider these things:

A vehicle typically drops in value by a quarter to a third once you drive it off the lot.

It is a bone-stock KLR. No rarity, panache, or chicks-dig-it going on; this is true of all KLRs.

It's a 2013. There are loads of them, and the following year's 2014.5 was/is more desirable in that it has a list of improvements in the suspension and seating, etc.

It's a KLR, and a KLR is a KLR. There are KLRs selling all day long for $2K. They might be 5 to 10 years older but, again, a KLR is a KLR. Not much has changed and mileage doesn't count for much.

Your location. Good god, man, I had to look it up. You haven't had a post office since Kennedy was in office. You're three hours from OKC. That's a hard location to sell in, and I imagine the price might be a bit steep for the typical local buyer. Wikipedia says it is a 'former community'; I think that means it's a ghost town. I envy you your location, though. I'd give my left nut to life in a place like that.

Your asking price doesn't seem out of line. In fact, it seems to be at the low end. The selling price is harder to know, as it depends on what buyer's want and what's being offered to them at the time they are buying.

Thanks for the reply,

I got a good chuckle out of it. Ghost town is about right. I had planned on doing a lot of off-roading but this bike is just way too heavy for me to lug through the woods. ......I lived in Dallas, Tx far too long and had to get away from the rat race. Peace and quiet is about all I get here.

That sounds about as quiet as South Pass City, WY population of 5-10. Atlantic City, WY is a 'bussalin' town in comparison, population of 35-100. Both seasonal numbers.
Lander, WY is only 35-40 miles down the mountain, for groceries or gas.

Well, I tell ya, I've added it to the list of places I gotta go to. I'm planning a trip to swing through Duck Creek Village, UT and Kiamichi, then on to points south and west.

Getting peace and quiet is why I'd give my left nut. I live in LA.

I spent a lot of time in north Dallas and McKinney. I think there is probably a room with my name still on it at the Embassy Suites at the 635 and 75. I was there one week in August when it hadn't been under 100 in a month and the ground was so dry that it was sinking and cracking, breaking water pipes. Later in the year it was so damn cold that it wouldn't snow. Reminded me of my hometown. Godawful place.

North Texas black gumbo!

I commuted from McKinney to Dallas and Garland for years, then from Wolfe City, Tx to Garland for a few more years.
My daughter fell into a crack in the ground waste deep once. We had to water our home's foundation to keep it from cracking.

Drop me a line when you come through Kiamichi, plenty of room to camp here and enjoy nature. My son lives in Provo Utah.
