Do you have other bikes besides your KLR?

now I'm sure a few of you own more than just your KLR for riding. like me, I just bought an 89 GS500 to get me around til I can buy a KLR for daily riding, at which time my GS will become track only.

I bought my GS with an interesting setup, an 05 KAWASAKI ZX6 front end, meaning forks, triple clamps. wheel and all. I absolutely love the dual disk brakes with 4 pot calipers on each disk. its NUTS how powerful that brake is compared to my old EX500 with a two piston caliper.

Don't have another one yet, but it is knawing at me to pick up something else to play with. Been wanting to get one of the older Muscle bikes, maybe a Kaw ZL1000 Eliminator.

2008 DL650 VStrom Yellow and Black
Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

I also have two Yamaha XT225's One for me ('92) and one for my wife ('06).

We ride together and go Geocaching with them.

2003 DL1K Vstrom

a good match for the KLR. The KLR is for the close dirt that is tough, the Vstrom is for the Far dirt that is not so tough...

Ok i have a couple others too but nothing catchy to say about them...

I've got a Ulyesses and a Husky 610 in addition to the klr. I've only put about 500 miles on the KLR since I got the husky. I need to fix a couple more things on the klr and it goes up for sale.

It's an okay bike. Great for 2-up.

Weird how some people buy other bikes and the KLR sits to the side, and others end up riding the KLR even more..

My KLR has become my main solo bike, and my Wing's my 2-up ride. The Strom just didn't do it for me..
