KLR World Tourer Article

If you have access to the US magazine Motorcycle Consumer News you may be interested in this: They've just started running a series of articles this month on building a KLR world touring bike. The author, Dr. Greg Frazier (a contributor here I think) has done a similar series in the past with a BMW airhead GS. I think this will be just as informative.

Ian, I havn't seen it on very many newsstands but you can subscribe and get back issues at www.mcnews.com. Kurt must be referring to the March issue because I don't see anything in the Feb. issue. If it is anywhere near as good as his R80 article it should be excellent.

As far as I know MCN is only published in the US but may be available in other contries as an import. Heck I get BIKE and now and again one of the other UK pubs. when I need a good giggle and to drool over bikes they won't sell in the US. MCN, however, is one of the best around. No advertising what so ever. This lets them say what they want (unlike all the other US publications). I highly recommend it.

Grant, maybe you could get something like that article published here as he's a friend of your's and all. Really enjoyed his last piece in MCN.
