Get a TR650. WAYYY more fun and capable than a KLR and costs about the same. I don't really understand people who make the argument that a KLR is more reliable because it uses WWII technology. ...

Man, that is one ugly bike! I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but can anyone tell me this doesn't look like an oversized klr650? Who takes design cues from the klr??!!

Tires

I've had my versys for a while and my biggest complaint with the bike is that there aren't a lot of good tire choices for the bike. I wish the michelin anakee's would fit this bike but no such luck....
