I just turned 56, retired 3 years ago, I travel fulltime, and the KLR is perfect for this. I have had 9 Harleys and 3 BMW's, and the KLR is just light and fun and simple.
Having a TT the bike goes in the back of the truck, if or when I need to get a 5ver, I can hang the bike off the front of the truck/ other bikes would be to heavy. ( only reason I would need a 5ver is if I meet my next ex wife )
With the 2 paniers, and the cheep and dirty milk crate on the back, I can get a lot of groceries, without starting the truck. Beaches, gravel, roads, on the road, trails, park in the mud puddle instead of on the sidewalk out front with the Harleys, its great. Things I couldn't do with a street bike.
Just gave away my Harley jacket, and only have 2 T-shirts left to wear out. ha ha.
