I ride to work every day, and many days ride for work, delivering stuff. Most days I take the KLR, instead of the Bandit 12 or the R1100Rs. It's just easier to hop on and use, gets 50 mpg, and is a superior traffic bike. Can also smoke junior riders on their latest tech machines, very easily in turns. Drag races the dressers, too, and smokes 'em!
