Not sure yet - Mrs GWN never knows her work schedule that far in advance! If not working she'd likely come. Thnx Greg.

It's a commercial, but a fun video.

Jing, is it just because he is "bald"? Or because he reminds you of my awesome riding skills? I noticed that he was not very smooth in the muddy trails, much like you, me and Jack in South Dakota last year with Dr. Evil, dropping our KLR's a collective number of 5 times? That is a cool commercial!

I'm with you on the riding skills in the muddy trails, 2nd thought, maybe they did that on purpose since 90% of the riders can't do any better than him, such as me. No comments on the "bald" part...

Exactly why I coughed up and ordered a set of SW-Motech crash bars from Avicious. I figure it's gonna have a nap some time or other. New KLR Barbie joined the Army... plastics are all olive drab green now, and have the tank out getting matching green Reflex bedliner sprayed on it. Have been cleaning up and repainting little bits and pieces. Should look good when it gets put back together in spring.

Anyone we know have these crash bars on their 1st Gen KLR?

we have them on my wife's '01 (and also on her BMW). Well made and good quality. The KLR has not needed them but the BMW has had a couple naps (stopped) and not a mark on them or the bike.

Did the drill thru on my KLR, man it took a long time to drill thru I thought it was just hollow in the middle but it's solid steel right thru Only did it cause I knew I would be carrying lots of weight on the back with the 3 boxes, supplies and camping gear!

I just bought a fork brace, never thought I would actually need one until I drove the bike with the weight on it. Forks felt like spaghetti! Although now I'll have to wait until spring to see the difference!

Yeah, think I'll do it too. Cheap insurance really. I did the Eagle-Mike bolt upgrade on the other bike, but I know the drill through long bolt method is superior.

Picked up the finished Reflex coating (truck bed liner) sprayed tank today... all the repainted bits:
