Fair play………traitor!

That should be better off road than the KLE. Is it a single?

You got a good deal. Did you pay the VRT on that yet? If not, download and fill out the form before you go in to the VRT office and it'll only take a few minutes, otherwise you could be waiting a while.

Nice change I love my kle but the next step will be a klr650. Now I ride my KLE and I also ride a 1990 KLR600S and I can tell that it works fine and for off-road is much better but for a longer trip with luggage and passenger I will take my KLE for road comfort.

Have fun with your new bike!
