15 posts later...Here's my KLR685 Dakar JPS

OK. She's a "restored" 1997 KLR650 with the 685 Schnitz kit, a Dakar Fairing, plus black powder-coating and Gold accents to give her that John Player Special look. Picked her up two days ago from a great guy in Long Beach. Can't wait to wring her out a bit.

Bike looks like it's ready to get some dirt! Nothing worse than a pic of a KLR in the back of a truck though! I know, it just needed a ride home. Have fun, where in so-cal are you?

dakar fairing

Thanks guys. I didn't plan on buying a trailer queen, but the PO (previous owner) really did a great job with her. Nearly a shame to get her dirty. Here's a shot of the Dakar-style fairing he fiber-glassed himself!!
