Reading Striking Vikings book, (who rode a KLR down and around South America) I was amazed by how many times he mentioned he had no brakes on a downhill, no power to go through a headwind or pass South American vehicles, and grenaded his engine, electronics and suspension multiple times. Not to mention the shitty suspension thrashed his back.
Yet he forgets to tell you how old this KLR is, how many miles it has travelled, where it has travelled, and what condition the bike is in now.
Put back together and still running strong.
