Installed the PackRat rack and Pelican 1550s today. Bought the Pelicans locally from a electronics liquidator and holy moly was the glue/foam difficult to remove.

Hi Brian.
I've always thought of those as Barbies and yours as Kens.

Clothes that a real Barbie wears....



This Barbie fell and broke her back (broken frame) Plastics and the rest of the bike were in good condition. Made for a nice find and parts bike for me.

I actually like the 2013's, especially in yellow.

As far as the green, they use the lime on every Ninja model as well as some other street models so MX only doesn't hold any special conotations with me. Honda paints everything red. Yamaha blue comes on just about everything with a tuning fork including the portable generators. If that's your position, I can understand that. I just like the lime so it made it THE KLR to have to ME. Although the dark greens are nice as well.
I paid extra for an '06 cuz it was lime green. She looks different today but, this wasn't too long after I first got her.

http:// Money well spent as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks! You either love it or hate it.... Some like to load 'em down, some like 'em naked. Not too hard to tell my preference!

Thanks. Some have no idea what it is, some think it is a KLX. I call it my KLR-X, hence the dash....

This clean green 2006 just appeared on CraigsList in the SF Bay Area. Am I going to be hated for posting this here? I'm not trying to hustle. Its not my bike, just sharing. Snake charmer seat and other bedazzled goodies.
