“You do not need a therapist if you own a motorcycle, any kind of motorcycle!” – Dan Aykroyd
Motorcycles are a passion for both of us. Rick is partial to cruisers while Adam loves street bikes but both of us love to twist the throttle on anything with two wheels and a motor!
For “The Lap” we have decided to ride Gen1 Kawasaki KLR 650s. Adam is on his red 2007 KLR and Rick saddles up his green 2006 KLR.
The KLR is the perfect bike for this type of adventure. It is powerful enough to cruise on interstates, big enough to carry the camping gear and versatile enough to handle the gnarly off road riding we will be searching out in Central America. The Gen 1 KLR doesn’t have computers, injection systems or parts that aren’t easily sourced in any country.
We both love our KLRs and have put thousands of kilometers on them preparing for “The Lap”.
