All depends on how old and how involved the person you ask has been with bikes for the past 50 years!

In the 60's & 70's they would have been referred to as 'Enduros'.
In the 80's & 90's they were more commonly called 'Dual-Purpose'.
Nowadays most people will tend to call them 'Adventure Bikes'.

And all three terms are perfectly fine for me.
As my '87 has 'Endured' a lot in its 'Dual' role of dirt & asphalt 'Adventures'.

Greenmeanmachine Yea, I wouldnít classify as just an enduro. Itís definitely a Swiss Army knife

Welcome to the forum, karnivor.

I'll again suggest that you might consider 4 simple, cheap & easy modifications which might help reduce the engines appetite for engine oil.

Check out mod #'s 7, 8, 9 & 10 from this thread.

OK, I kid, SERIOUSLY tho, this bike has brought me nothing but pure joy. Cabrito is the shit! And I know I got the best deal a guy could get. Finally had my first adventure on it (more on that in a different post).

I look forward to exploring the forum and checking out all the KLR goodness here.

Peace!

Was that the long loop he just posted?
Welcome aboard Joe, you will enjoy that bike more and more every year. I need to get down there and do a loop like that. Looks like a great time.
