The KLR can do everything ... but nothing perfect

I have done track days on my KLR
Surprised MANY sport bike riders in the twisties on it.
Rode 1100 miles one day, 1421 miles day two, and 1491 miles day three (19hours, 32 hours & 36 hours respectively).
705 kitted, stage two headed, completely modded KLR.
It does it all ... just not to perfection ... but neither have I ever in my life.
We're a match made in heaven :)

I love it ... but needed a DL1000 for the highway stuff (done now).

Would I want the F8 ??

Oh YEAH ... it's giving both the DL & the KLR705
nightmares in the garage.
