My 16 year old son rides a KLR 250 back and forth to school. He's ridden well over 10,000 miles on the road on the same set of street tires this school year. Top speed is 83 miles an hour. No issues...

A few years ago I had the same dilemma. Ended up buying an Aeroflow extra tall and I love it. Much quieter, sends the wind around or over me. I live in southern Arizona and ride just about every day....

follow up Closed Sun & Mon

They're closed Sunday & Monday. Should be back up Tuesday. Very atypical service for them. I've been dealing with them for over 30 years. Wonderful service. I'll be watching your post.

Aeroflow Extra Tall

I'm 5'9", 32 inseam and when sitting tall look over the screen. If I slouch I look through it. I usually look over it. Very quiet at all speeds. This I feel is it's best feature. Lost a couple of...

Ran it dry a few months ago. 09 GS Adventure - computer counted down to zero, then just flashed I think. I rode for 14 miles after I saw zero. The engine hesitated, then a couple seconds later it...

Anakees vs Tourances

BigShow - good post. I think I'll try out the Anakees this winter when I can really get back on some nice dirt roads around here. Summertime sometimes gets to be too warm around my neighborhood....

Lower the Seat

Lower the seat, it's a lot cheaper and easier than the suspension. I rode an 1100 GS no problems. Got an 09 GS and just got used to it. If it's going to be really hairy dirt riding, lower the seat,...
