A video tribute to my 2003 KLR685:
I couldn’t let it go without paying honor to a motorcycle I have shared so many years with, even if it is just a KLR. That’s saying something since I have never done this for any ex-boyfriend. I wanted to show and explain a little bit of the process and development over the last 3 years – 8 months and 46,579 miles as both Oscar and I progressed.
Sifting through my oh-so-many-images of the trip, I Finally found a good pic of Oscar…
Purchased: in July 2009 for $2,100 in Lancaster, CA, USA with 8,895 miles

US (States: Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, South Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Nevada), Canada (Providences: British Colombia, Yukon, Alberta), Baja California, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina
I was going to touch upon the pros and cons of owning a KLR, but a list of modifications over the years and an evaluation of whether they were worth it or not might be of more interest: KLR-Modifications & COST
And a BIG THANKs to the many hands who have helped me along the way!!
