A Trip Around the World or a Weekend Warrior, there are upgrades you will need to do on your Kawasaki KLR 650 before you take off on your adventure of a lifetime. See PART 1 of this Tutorial here: I'll take you through my own personal upgrades and modifications on my 2015 Kawasaki KLR 650 and a 2007 KLR 650 to help prepare you for a small or big trip. Video Mentioned: 500 Days Alaska to Argentina - The Modern Motorcycle Diaries - (See Gear List Below) As I have always said to everyone, you don't need an expensive bike, expensive upgrades or gear to travel or have an amazing adventure, it takes ingenuity, creativity, courage, and the will to make your dreams and goals come true regardless of the challenges, hardships or struggles you will and could potentially face. These suggestions and examples of upgrades and modifications are obviously optional, not mandatory , and should not stop you from just jumping on your motorcycle and taking off. Remember I traveled around the entire USA with a camping backpack and no upgrades, I've traveled across Nepal on a rented 200cc Bajaj Pulsar in a shirt and backpack, and Egypt on a 150cc scooter with nothing but my sense of adventure, and so can you!
