Ah, the good old KLR650. Had a 1999 one, in 2000. It was a great road bike... did 15,000km in one season on it.

Well Spud I must admit i'm liking the transition from my old 955i to my Xcx. :thumbsup

I've had mine since they were released here in March and i can't find fault with it. It'll deal with pretty much anything i throw at it (including a little more off-roading now i'm building my confidence) and keeps coming back for more!  :icon_cool:

As for the toys, well they're there if you want them. I use the cruise control, rain (of course) & off road modes quite a bit but not tinkered with the rider configurable modes too much as yet. :^_^

Off road i hear you say? I know guys like SexySi over on the ABR forum and Blacktiger on here who take their Xc's literally everywhere!!  :wheel

Reliability, well speak to Mr Rhys Lawrey ( http://www.2mororider.com ) who's just returned on his Xc from his Record breaking 56,800 + mile round-the-world trip without so much as a few chain & sprockets changes and a couple of sets of tyres!  :icon_salut:

You're more than welcome to pop over one of the days and have a go on the Xcx out for yourself, i know Mr Stenhouse enjoyed himself when we met up in Wales earlier in the year. Who knows, it might even help convert you!  :icon_wink:
All the best, Mat-tiger1. 👍
