but the loathing of the KLR is not a reflection on the poor saps that got suckered into buying them, Peer presure is a powerful thing.
Its not a random grudge, the KLR is 50 lbs heavier, is covered in breakable bodywork, has a horrible suspension system for offroad use, has a lot higher service needs and costs more to boot.
The things it does better (In factory form), logner fuel range, standard rear rack, better weather protection.
I don't hate KLR owners or softail harley owners just their bikes. But I'd own either bike if the price was right.
