It's the journey, not the destination.
nooner, I'm with ya. I like the unique bike you get with all the tinkering. But the whole "you'll save money" with a KLR gets folks thinking it's all good. Truth is, the huge list of farkle means not just plenty of customizing, but a virtual pipe from your wallet to _______ (name your vendor). That's fine, but for those of us with weak willpower and strong tinkering bents it spells: $$$$$$$$
…course, could you imagine the bill for doing the same when Touratech, etc is where you buy your bits vs. klr650.com?
