Great information here and thank you, sincerely.
In many ways jxvak summed it up: if I were to sell my KLR, Iíd miss it like an old dog. I appreciate everyoneís comments.
Jarrett - Huge thanks for your thoughts. I am looking hard at the DCT model for the stalling issues you mentioned. In altitude, even clutching can be a challenge to keep the KLR moving.
VFMoore - yeah, that whole area is a massive playground for adventure bikes. Between where I live and Lake City is Cottonwood Pass. More specifically itís between Buena Vista and Taylor Park. The east side is paved and you canít help but push the bike to redline and scape pegs on corners. The west side is a gravel dirt road with stunning vistas.
Much appreciated again, everyone. Glad I joined the forum.
