Considered it, but I do either cold or wet, not cold/wet. You don't want to be around me when I'm cold/wet and grumpy.

Rain stopped before we left the Exxon and the sun was out for the 2nd half.

New to KLR's and this thread

I picked up this '09 with low mileage and already wired for Garmin and Gerbing late last summer after beating up my 1150 GS on some trails well above my skill level. Have worked on getting her road ready over this past nasty Cleveland winter and now during the monsoon spring we are having.

Here's how she looked when I got her:



... and a couple weeks ago ....



I have since sold the Kawi saddlebags to a fellow advrider inmate and have added Ranger Dirt Bagz and an EM fork brace. My new fender should arrive tomorrow. My farkle wish list is getting smaller as is my bank account while my '02 Road King and "04 GS are gathering dust!

I expect to do the doo and add a thermo-bob along with braided brake lines next winter - for now I just want to log some miles already!

i have enjoyed seeing everyones klr's here, some gave good ideas.
my experience with this bike has been truly satisfactory. i have raced it,
toured it and commute on it. it has been my winter bike, too. although i
did lots of changes and improvements, i equally enjoyed doing them and have learned a lot from that...my philosophy with the klr (and a buddy recently bought one) is 'just ride the thing'
i know i have some better photos...
