I love my KLR for what it is capable of.
For you fellers with the new bikes welcome to the
website and welcome to a whole new riding world
It's no crotch rocket, nor is it a great motocrosser by any stretch.
What it CAN do is roll over curbs, parking blocks, I've literally climbed
stairs, it can shred alongside a railroad bed, jam down the interstate at
90+mph, dive into and out of hairpin turns and crazy low lean angles,
cross water as deep as the tops of the tires, wheelie like a nut in the
first two gears, awesome 0-60 times before it falls asleep, commutes for pennies,
climbs hills pretty well with the heavy front end, and for you gents that
prefer a roadside private smoke n' pee break, disappearing into a thicket or dirt
turnoff is a cinch. They rarely break down, repairs are usually cheap, with the
huge sales over three decades, aftermarket support and goodies are plentiful.
If a rocket guy says "wanna race?" we can say "sure, across that creek to the top
of the hill beyond it?", and that's all I can think of at the moment.
There's nothing like a dual sport,
This is my son, with whom I am well pleased." ----God
