Getting the Itch for One of These

So I'm sitting at work bored as usual going through Craigslist ads. I ran across an 09' KLR that's decked out with Farkles and wanted to get ya'll opinions as I know many people on this site have a KLR or have at least ridden one.

http://austin.craigslist.org/mcy/4001018558.html (Not sure If I'm allowed to post a craigslist ad, but I'm not selling it......just wanted to show ya'll what it has)

I figure I could get it for $4,500 but don't know if that's a good price. I add bags to all my bikes so I'd assume I'd come out ahead buying one with the bags already on it. There's over $1,000 in bags on this one.

Bike looks slick.

He doesn't have it posted. But the post said to shoot him a PM if anyone was interested for his number.

I've had my KLR for 4 years and love it. It and the Versys make a great team, the KLR to haul whatever I want where ever I want (just slowly) And the Versys for the road work or when I want to get there fast!

If you get a KLR do the Do-Hickey, the T-Bob and the sub frame drill through and if you're planning to offroad a real bash plate, the factory crapper is plastic!

Here's The Fat Little Pig! All Dolled up for a trip to WV to get dirty.


Or was that look THEN leap?

I have a friend with a 250 MP3 and its a hoot. Its neat to pull up to a stop and lock the lean position and keep your feet up. Roll on the throttle and lean away like a regular bike. I imagine the 500 is twice as fun due to the pep.
