    Part 1 of 5. I have split up the following posts due to a 1,000 character limit. I don't know why that character limit exists, but it is what it is. They read top to bottom.

    I drive a red 2006 klr 650. It is my primary means of transportation, so I drive from about 10 degrees F to 100+ in Missouri. I like wrenching, modding, programming, amungst other things so we will see where I take that. I bought my bike December 31st 2010 for $2,500 with 2600 miles on it. I've doubled that in about a year up to 5500 miles.

    Modifications in progress or completed:
    1) Doohickey Planned and purchased (I bought it a year ago, but the acetylene torch I was going to bend my 32 mm wrench was out of oxygen.) I plan to do the doo Saturday along with a oil change + Magnetic Drain Plug Instal + Stainless steel oil Filter install + Oil Filter Screen Cleaning
    2) Stainless Steel Oil Filter
    3) Magnetic Drain Plug
    4) Aftermarket Grips
    5) Grip Heaters. I've installed them but never plugged them in.

    Modifications in progress or completed (cont.)
    6) Happy Trails Hard Luggage Rack
    7) 20 mm ammo cases planned soon. I plan to follow this guy's instructions (click link). Really neat how he does it, worth a look.
    8) Aftermarket Exhaust. I am not sure what type was used, previous owner did it.
    9) Thermobob
    10) Happy Trails Fork Brace

    Planned Modifications:
    1) Grifter Storage Box. Kinda useless but neat box that goes under the license plate. I might not do this if my froogle side gets ahold of me. (Click Link)
    2) Happy trails skid plate
    3) Nerf Bars/Crash Bars (Undecided retailer. I am thinking about going with the klr650.com version - they seem stronger than the happy trails version. I like the design and value of the HT or klr650.com more than the motec ones.
    3) Engine Guard (undecided klr650.com's version vs happy trails)
    4) Cheap Tank Painners
    5) Tank Bag (Gears Canada) LINK 1 LINK 2

    Planned Modifications (cont.)
    6) 2 Cupholders. Think like this guy on his nerf bars: LINK 1 LINK 2 LINK 3
    7) Eagle Mike Subframe upgrade kit. I figure I should do this with the extra painner weight.
    8) Maybe a Crash bar Bag like these(click link)
    9) Auto Chain Luber, like this guy: (perhaps automated somehow....click link). That is a hand sanitizer bottle connected to a flexible tube that delivers 20wt 20.
    10) Some sort of gas tank mount.
