Thanks

Good call. The Givi looks way too big now that I see it on a bike. The bike cable lock sounds better.

Don't kill me, but the doohickey on a 2011 KLR?

I am a newbie. So there. I know the controversy. I assume that Kawasaki does also.

I just got a 2011 KLR. Do I need to do the doo, or did they redo the doo in the new models?

:D

Off brand gear

I have been on this site buying used gear. So far it has been about 60% of retail. Jackets, pants, boots, etc. No big $$. New stuff everyday on the yard sale.
