I do love my KLR, but I also love to hate it. I have long gangly legs, and tho I think the DR is a better basic bike, I don't fit on one so well.
Many a discussion on into the night,,all the things needed to make a KLR a better ride,,you still have a KLR when yer done.
In it's favor,, the KLR will out-do any other thumper bike for load capacity, camp chairs, kitchen sinks, a chicken coop(with chickens),,on and on,,make up your own variety of fantasy,the klr will carry it..I have skidded tree length logs with mine!
not worth a hoot in the snow!
News flash,,KLR's suck in deep snow!
