"Project KLR" 2006 KLR 650
This a 06 KLR 650 that I paid $100.00 for 2 years ago. With a little time on the internet and the help of E bay I managed to find the parts to completely put it back together and over the course of rebuilding I also had done a number of Mods and upgrades. I've put 10,000 Km's on it and it runs like a top. I had some bugs to work out at first, but now it's a very reliable bike and a tone of fun.
I grew up riding a dirt bike with my Brother and Dad and then got into Sport bike riding for the last twenty years. After riding this KLR for one summer I sold my CBR 929rr with a 150 horse power the following fall. I got tired of looking like I was trying to hump a football and killing my neck on long trips.
Adventure riding is where its at, but let's keep it a secret.
Each winter I continue to research and learn as much about the bike and see what others have done to make improvements. The KLR may not be the fastest bike on the pavement, but I've never had anyone pass me on the dirt and I don't have to worry about where the cops are hiding out. Riding a Dual Sport bike has sparked a whole new interest in riding bikes and planning trips for the upcoming summer. I'll post some pictures of "Project KLR" Dakar Edition. I still have plans for a few more upgrades, but for now I'm ready for next season.
Please feel free leave comments good or bad as I would like some feed back. If you see something on the bike that peaks your interest, please feel free to contact me and I'll be more then happy to get back to you.
