About a year ago I bought a used 08 KLR. I have quite a few bikes and don't license all of them each year. This year I plated the KLR and rode it for the first time the other day. I rode 150 mi, about half in a light rain. I absolutely love it. Plenty of power, great handling. I think if I just had to have one bike the KLR just might be my choice. I am a very happy old guy.
