Don't hold back, hit us with your best shot. We can take it. Besides, I'm originally from AK, so I'm looking forward to all the pictures.

The stock windscreen does me just fine. I adjust it all the way up, just using the bottom bolts for freeway riding, and all the way down for dirt riding. I don't like looking thru plastic at ruts, it was a contributing factor to my first get-off awhile back. And the saddle is from Bill Mayer. Very nice. I wsn't a big fan of the stocker.

that's funny.. we saw more 2008 KLR's than any other bike. In the rough stuff. Sure there were herds of GSA's, but only on the main routes. They with their immaculate BMW riding suites without a single bug splatter. I'm not saying they couldn't, but they didn't. Make your own decisions..

The whole thing with the KLR for me is that it fits my budget, it's got accessories up the wazoo, it's easy to work on, and there are lots of used ones out there at a good price....it does keep whispering in my ear and your trip insight just fans the flames........


bastard.

Keep 'em coming!
