I never saw this Army bike.

Recommended Posts

This 1998 Kawasaki KLR 250 was purchased by the U.S. Government and issued to the U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Berets) for the fight in Western Europe through the Cold War with Russia. :smirk: Silly me, here I thought that Regan was instrumental in cold war negotiations and I also thought the cold war ended in 91 w/ the collapse of The Soviet Union. :smirk:

Good find Ud.

MAX!!!

But..but..but..it has the military "black out" drive light and a stealth exhaust system so it has to be real and I'm sure if you did a history search of this bike you would find that the solider who rode it did a heroic mission and saved all of us from becoming communist!

and the ranger bat had a motorpool full of XR's, I think they were 650L's, all blacked out like the buggies they had

It is green? I think it is authentic! They should triple the price. What is blue book on a 98 KLR250 anyway. I have muffler packing and paint is cheap too. Let me know if you sell that thing for anywhere near 2800. Ha

I remember reading about those in a magazine. Never saw one in person though.
