In this episode, I'm joined by Lurch and Oscar. We discuss Lurch's recent purchase of a 2022 Kawasaki KLR 650 and more. He explains his reasoning for buying the KLR instead of one of the other adventure motorcycles on the market. We break down the different models of the 2022 Kawasaki KLR and why he chose a base model. Lurch talks about his buying experience.
Adventure riding season is just getting started here in the greater Yakima, WA area. Late snowfall in April pushed the season back a bit. We look forward to getting out and adventure riding. Of course, we'll film it!
We talk about the accessories and parts we are going to put on Lurch's bike and items you may want to install on your adventure motorcycle. Oscar went from a 15 tooth front socket to a 14 tooth socket for more power when lower gears. Lurch may end up doing the same. Ryan, who is smaller than both Lurch and Oscar stuck with the 15 tooth front gear.

Ryan has a 2018 Kawaski KLR 650 and Oscar has a 2017 KLR 650. We compare the new 2022 Kawasaki KLR 650 to the older models. The most notable change is the new bike is fuel injected. At the time of the podcast recording, DynoJet is making a Power Commander V for the 2022 Kawasaki KLR 650. Oscar made a good argument for Lurch to add the Power Commander V.
