My KLR the day I got her

This was after I put 33 miles on her with no tag

Been wanting one for years... This is one of the happiest days I can remember. Just the color I wanted and the price too... I paid $3800, I think it was a bargain.. Been farkled a little since then

She now sits close to 1900 miles...(I dont get to ride as much as I want)

Mods: Shortned kickstand...saftey removed...Clutch safety removed.. Coo Case V28 With alarm, brake lights and tail lights and keyless enty..Corbin Dual Platform seat...More to come

You must click first pic to get vid to work ( dont know how to embed vid)


This is how she sits now...shorter kickstand not on in this pic

Nice. That new bike feeling is awesome. But so is having a bike you have lived with for a while. you illustrated that well.

hey man, nice. my buddy has the exact same colors on his new bike. same bike -the corbin seat. so I'm sure your rear feels better. I'm still on a gen 1. hard for me to replace it but one day I know i'm going to have to. Hope I'm as happy as you are when that day comes.

cool. Where did you buy it? I bought my red one from a guy north of Huntsville 1 month ago today. I was looking on craigslist every day for a month before I bought mine. Just wondering if I saw yours for sale at any point. I remember there being a blue one in Ft. Payne for sale for $3950 that I wanted but sold too quick. I sent out alot of emails on CL lookin for a blue one. I'm happy with my red one...but at the time I decided to go with a gen2 KLR, I was enamoured with the blue.
