    Finally Farkled my KLR

    Well, Long story short I would rather keep my KLR than sell it or trade it in for what I could get for it, so I'm going to!

    That being the case, I decided to farkle the old girl up to make it "mine" and get the protection and luggage capacity I need to use it as the budget adventure-tourer I originally intended.

    This Morning:



    This afternoon:





    I posted more details and pics in a thread over on KLR650.net

    Greetings fellow KLR owner, nice looking ride! I really need to do something with my '95. The Malibu Barbie look is getting really old.

    Sweet. I sold my KLR and put the money towards Tdub2's build. I seriously considered a fat 19-inch front tire and rim and more street oriented tires than the 760s, but I already have another street bike. Not an easy choice, but no regrets.

    Thanks all for the kind words! I put about 100 miles on today and the new fender is definitely much more stable in the wind, between that and the new shield the bike is much more comfortable to ride on the highway.

    I'm actually thinking about a set of 17" supermoto wheels + tires for a second set, and then putting DOT knobbies on the stock wheelset. Not this month though! $$$$$$

    Looks good!

    Good to hear you decided to keep it - personally I love my KLR, it complements the TW nicely. Only bad thing is it seems to have the largest selection of aftermarket parts availability of any bike on the planet. I have farkled mine up, and still have more I'd like to add.

    It would be interesting to start a KLR thread to see how many TW riders own one, and of course include pictures to enjoy.
