There were several KLRs in 2010, myself included. It was a little tough keeping up sometimes on the faster roads but the dirt was definitely an equalizer. My only problem was keeping warm enough on a couple of the rainy,sleety days. I had a gerbings jacket liner and gloves but the KLR electric system couldn't put out enough juice to keep me as toasty as I was hoping for. That said, a couple of the guys I was riding with just used extra sweatshirts and garbage bags. They were definitely tougher than I am.
