  1. Hehe,

    I just stumbled upon an early inquiry you made on a cruiser forum, looking for bike advice. 🙂

    Glad you went with the KLR650?

    ” I’m 6’3, 175 lbs, will have a good sized load of gear and will be traveling from LA all the way to Brazil.
    What is the best bike for the job?
    (also, belt, chain or shaft driven)
    I’ve read up on the Aero 1100, but it seems to fishtail with a lot of weight on the back.”

    1. I didn’t write what you quoted, but maybe that’s not what you meant. I’m 6’1, 150lbs…

      But yes, very glad I chose the KLR. It’s a great bike, doggedly reliable, easily fixed, parts were easy to find, and there’s an incredible community of experts and a wealth of knowledge online. It’s a great bike, I would choose it again for a similar trip in a heartbeat. Plus, I met other KLR riders like yourself on the road! 🙂
