You absolutely positively refuse to pay a dime more than $6 grand for a brand new motorcycle.

New 2012 model, coming today, talked em from $6900 out the door (including tax, title, license) down to $5900 out the door.

funny story

But we didn't think quick steel would be enough. So we turned to safety wire.



Held up through Superstition and Ocotillo Wells OHV park. I'm sure my friend will find a new solution now that he's home.

You know your a klr rider if your bike is 4 shades of blue and headed for 5(I thought that Krylon fusion would match one of the other colors). You also know you're one when your license plate is held on with wire.What can I say, its older than i am.

5 day ride, day three heading toward the racetrack in DV. Lost the bolt holding the exhaust to the bike. Temporary fix of a purple anodized carbiner and some zip ties...

You know you're a KLR rider when...
