The KLR650 is still a great bike for most mere mortals. Enough acceleration to 60 mph to put most cars in your vibrating rear mirrors, but not enough to get you killed if your careful. And then theres that whole offroad world.



Frankly, I'd like to own a bike that could do 175 mph, but I'm old enough to know I I'd probably die before reaching anywheres near that speed.

Dont let my goofy article comments fool ya- I love the finally aquired KLR already, and got it specifically for the potholed Big City, but... sometimes when you put your used/new tractor down the road, and hold your hat on as a new rocket blasts by, you may remember the one you had. Thats all. Not a bike out there I cant enjoy!

BTW, where do YOU site your oil- beyond(just)the top mark, or above the glass, etc? Whats your mileage if you have diff exhaust, jet, etc? My old 89 is rejetted+supertrapped, runs strong, not stupidly rich- anyhoo, any wisdom, tips much apriciated, thanks-

wells in NYC.

It sounds like a considerable upgrade in terms of performance, but I simply CAN'T get past the looks. It looks like a sport touring version of the ZX-10. Maybe some hard luggage or a trailer to complete the list of accessories?
