Geez we need some diversity around here! Everybody's on a Katoom.

Here is your diversity. I'm on the red KLR, friend in on the Blue. I bought her new right when they remodeled it. Purchased the second one in town.

Nice Marco! How is it for you height-wise?

Kinda tall like a dirt bike.

it is set up for a 200+ lb rider though. I think when I get the suspension closer to my weight it'll settel some.

It's not too bad I don't guess though.

The newer KLR's are pretty neat. I spent a long weekend in northern California on one blasting around. They are pretty smooth for big singles. To bad we never got diesels.

Congrats Marco. Very cool bike. Should be a lot of fun to cruise around on.

The KLR is venerable for sure. One of the very few bikes you can ride freaking ANYwhere, then take on a trip to Tierra Del Fuego.

If only they had suspension and a snappier motor... updated tech in other words. But you won't find the whole package anywhere else.

We definitely need a Rising Sun outing. Y'know, I've never actually ridden in the areas NE of Gunnison and I hear they are wonderful. I smell a camping riding weekend.

By NE Gunnison do you mean Pitkin area.. with access to Hancock, Tomichi, Alpine Tunnel.. and all that other fun stuff? I bet we'd be into that..

And it figures Kimmel would have a dirt bike that can spank everyone else's, nice bike man!
