Got laid off about a year and a half ago, and still have obligations, so moved from Boulder, CO to Bend, OR and am now getting settled. Still have the '96 KLR and am now going to use it for commuting as my one way trip to work is ~3 miles; used to work at home. Baby is running great after a carb rebuild and rejet (dynojet is awesome as I went from Colorado 5K to 9K on one ride to ~ 4K to I think maybe 5K here and the new jetting recommendation is great !). Also for all you with my vintage of bike, take that seat off and check those subframe bolts. I'm not a big guy and when I was rejetting the bike, found one of my subframe bolts snapped off, the 10mm upgrade seems like a must imho.
