New KLR

Well guys, Just wanted to say how much I love my 2012 KLR. I've had it 3 weeks and have 200 miles on it. When I bought my VTX I only put maybe 300 miles on it all year! the first year. Now I'm just debating on taller windshield or not. The stock one does a pretty good job. I have a friend that wants to organize a dual sport ride, which sounds like fun to me.

I'm not far ahead of you, having only 378 miles on my 2012 KLR. I'll be going with a taller windshield eventually. There are several posts about taller windshields, do a search, there's some really good info. I'm still in the decision phase about which one to buy.
