For Sale: 2008 KLR for sale DUBAI

Hey all,

I am nearing the end of my trip from England to Dubai and the plan at the start of the trip was to ship the bike back to Australia but now i am thinking i might sell to a good home/tent. Not that i want to sell it but as i am flat broke from my trip and uni starts next year, i could do with the cash.

As mentioned before it is a 2008 KLR which has about 34-35,000km's on the clock. I say about because there is something wrong with the speedo mechanism which i will fix in Dubai. I don't think it is the cable as i bought a new one in Iran. Currently says 28,500km's on my dial.

I had already done 3000km's in Australia before i started the trip and my oh my, has it been the perfect bike. Only had a few problems on the way, most of which were manufacturing faults which i got a recall notice for, very easy to fix.

Has the usual scratches and scrapes of a hardy adventurer but still runs perfectly. It comes (if wanted) with a top box and 2 side panniers (all hand made by my dad, extremely strong and safe, no one has broken into them yet) mounted on homemade racks. The racks that my dad modeled them on cracked and had to be welded but the ones he made which are on my bike are in perfect condition.

I suppose this is more an notice of interest so please email me if you have any questions/queries/ponderings at: *bloodyhellvon* *at* *hotmail* *dot* *com*.
Pictures can be emailed as well of course As i don't have them on me now.

I will be arriving in Dubai anytime from the 10th-16th December and leaving on the 28th December. So what gives about 2 weeks for me to sell the bike.
