And here's the link:

2008 Kawasaki KLR 650 (My newest - boosted to 688 cc)
2005 Blue DL650 (sold with regret - hurt the knees)
2007 Boulevard C50 (Wife's bike)

If your nose is close to the grindstone and you hold it here long enough, in time you’ll say there’s no such thing as brooks that babble and birds that sing. These three will all your world compose: just you, the stone, and your poor old nose.

And here's the bottom line from the review:

"It is almost as competent as its bigger brother, it's easier to ride, it's much cheaper and it offers the safety of anti-lock brakes. I can think of no better all-round motorcycle."

Do you think this guy actually took a ride on the bike.

"... and the windscreen is adjustable so there is actually more wind protection than would be expected."
I haven't heard from too many people that like the windscreen.

He got the rest of it right.
