Hello from Raleigh, NC.

I've utilized this forum many times in the past 3+ years as well as the others out there. Today I was researching my next tire purchase and came across a thread that I felt reflected this forum, it's respective modiators, and the industry very well. I decided to make the plunge from long-time lurker to forum member. My first moto love was a cafe'd '72 CB450 that I sold to buy my pre-owned 2012 KLR. I've had it now for over 3 years and it has served my commuting and weekend joy rides well. These days I intend to take more advantage of the adventure side of this bike. I'm a member of the Facebook KLR owners group though I post rarely. That's about the extent of my KLR community outreach. Thanks for having me aboard👍🏼

eBay score.

As it was -


Gave it some personality -


Thickest skid plate I've ever seen. Figured it could loose a little weight in some areas👍🏼
