I have a Kawasaki KLR 650. Kawasaki has been selling pretty much the same bike since 1987. No fuel injection or ABS. They are very inexpensive (new ones can be had for about $6000). There's a running joke in the community that every year the main update on the new model is bold new graphics.

Spare parts are easy to find and there are a lot of aftermarket parts.

The downside is that the bike is basically a late '80's bike. 40ish horsepower, poor fuel economy, weak brakes, poor handling, etc...

But, like lots of people say, it's more fun to drive a slow bike fast than a fast bike slowly. I love it.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
