Been gone for a while. Sold the ER6n, got a Honda CRF250L, kept the KLR. Sold the CRF250L and got a Africa Twin, still have the KLR, still love the KLR. The KLR is closing in on 50K miles. Still runs fine.

The Africa Twin is like a giant dual sport with tons of power. It is amazingly agile and comfortable to ride. Only farkles so far are the bar risers, OEM centerstand and Batzen screen riser.

Let me just say off the get go this took 3-4 months. Most of that time was spent waiting on parts. The other thing was trying to figure out issues, such as why it would die if you put it in gear... There is a kickstand safety that won't allow you to put the bike in gear if the kickstand is down. My kickstand switch was bent and would work but occasionally when you're riding it would die for no reason... That was before i knew there was a safety.

Then there was the issue of the bike wouldn't kick over. The only way I could get the bike going was to bump start it. After the bike was warm it would start right back up with one kick. I researched it and everything led to the valves. So after adjustment of the valves the bike kicked over from 3 kicks.

Then Came the stripping down... The shock I had on it was very bad. I fit a klr650 shock in it after drilling the bottom mount to fit the original pin. Replaced the bearing and greased it up!

Oil and coolant was dripping out of the weep hole so I rebuilt the water pump.

I too rode many questionable trails when I was young, and indestructible?
My NX250 got me through without any major damage. (No thanks to me.)
I'm now pushing the high end of the 70's, and have slowed down quite a bit. It all comes to the decision as to when to stop, and turn around. (I don't do mud any more.)
I ride my KLR650 on gravel roads, and some rough abandoned roads, but to get into tight places, I save that for my Honda NX250. As long as there's no mud!
