Lightbulb 2011 KLR 650 in ARGENTINA

Hey everybody-

JUST DROPPED IT TO $4500. CHECK OUT THE PICS, LOOK AT THE MILEAGE AND LIST OF UPGRADES. COMPARE TO ANY OTHER BIKE ADVERTISED AND COME TAKE A LOOK AT IT. IT'S BEEN BABIED AND IN EXCELLENT MECHANICAL CONDITION.

My bike is a California-plated 2011 KLR650 with less than 20k miles, all tricked out for a trans-continental journey. I did this trip once before in 2010, on another KLR, and wouldn’t dream of using any other bike for it. Also, having run through it all in the past, I knew exactly what I wanted this KLR to look like for my trip, and tweaked it accordingly. I probably don't need to mention she runs excellent, and all maintenance was performed religiously. These bikes are bullet-proof to begin with, but with proper maintenance they are immortal. Here’s the list of the main upgrades:

- Progressive Suspension 465 rear shock
- Progressive Suspension front fork springs
- Sunstar 16 tooth front sprocket
- Happy Trails heavy-duty shift lever
- SW Motech skid plate
- SW Motech crash bars
- SW Motech center stand
- SW Motech rear master cylinder guard
- Happy-Trails panniers
- In-line fuel filter
- Bark-Busters hand guards
- Eagle-mike handlebar risers
- 4" over stock windshield
- 12V accessory plugs
- Rotopax 2-gal fuel container
- Eagle-mike 2" raising links (stock bones included)
- Bill Mayer Saddles custom molded seat
- 1.5" Eagle Mike Handlebar risers
- Universal throttle locker
- Universal highway pegs
- PIAA extra-loud horn

Most of these are pretty self-explanatory/ obvious upgrades, such as the crash-bars, skid plate, etc. Others you only realize the true value of after a few solid 12-hour days on the road. BMS custom seat, for example; a $700 investment I would have happily paid twice that for. I used a stock saddle for my 2010 trip and, even with a memory-foam pillow I added along the way, I had to draw my ass-crack back on with a sharpie at the end of long days.

Included with the bike would come a full set of everything you need for a trip- over a grand worth of essentials between the tank bag, a spare rear tire, tubes, oil-filters, spare drive-chain, sprockets, bearings, all tools and spare parts, as well as 2 helmets (I have several you can choose from) and riding gear (gloves, jacket and pants if they fit you- again, I have a few of these in the garage). And tons more, if you want it. Basically, everything you need related to bike is included. Bring your toothbrush and a change of underwear and you can ride anywhere in the world.

Anyway, the bike is in Buenos Aires right now- I’m from here, but live in California. Dropping the price to US$4,500. Give me a shout and steal it quick!

Feel free to contact me with any questions, or to let me know what you think. Either way, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need any help/ advice while in Argentina. If you come through Buenos Aires, we’ve always got a spare room for a motorcycle traveler, and plenty of contacts in every country on your way North. Would be a pleasure to sit down and go over a map, or catch a and trade war-stories any time!

Attached are some pictures of the bike. Cheers!

Michael

Is she still available?

Hi Michael,

first of all: Is the bike still available?

I'm also interested in whether the ownership transfer is possible and how long that would take.
I'm currently in Santiago de Chile and would come back to BA to pick her up.

Either way I'd like to have a chat with you about your travelling experience in SA. I'm just about to start my trip for the next months and any help, tip or warning is appreciated! ;-)

Kind regards
