    Looks like an updated, somewhat less ugly, Pacific Coast. Even the engine is almost the same size. Being a Honda, it is probably a good bike and very functional, in a generic, bland sort of way.

    You may want to do a little research on the KLR. There are many threads about it's propensity for using a LOT of oil (newer model only). The resale is nil and the first time you get out on some...

    Depending on how important it is to have everything keyed alike, I would take a close look at Givi top boxes. The quality, customer service and resistance to weather make them an excellent choice. ...

    Re: Windshield

    As far as function is concerned, the Parabellum is great. A little funky looking at first, I actually got used to it and remembered that BMWs can be a little funky looking too. Great coverage but...
