Took a pre super bowl ride yesterday . my company was a two up 1500 gold wing and a lady on a triked out , heavy customised 1800 gold wing . my klr was the filling in a gold wing sandwich . We had a great ride and a good lunch with cups of good coffee to keep the cold at bay ! anyone ride with heavy duty bikes for company ? my klr did,nt disgrace it,s self , more than kept up with the pace and I was all over them like a rash in the twisties. My old yamaha roadstar would ground everything when I used to ride with the local gold wing chapter a couple of years ago . I love my klr !
