New/Old guy

I've been riding bikes nearly all my life. I have a 06 Goldwing but was getting tired of the same old paved roads. I knew there had to be some interesting sights on the dirt and gravel roads of Western Iowa, so I bought an 09 KLR last summer and it has become my main ride. If my wife is riding with me or I have a fast, long trip I take the wing. The KLR is a fun bike and I've had a great time getting back to a basic motorcycle that goes nearly everywhere. I added an FMF slip on muffler/jet kit, bigger windshield, Corbin Seat and some soft bags. Original tires didn't last long so I changed to Avon Gripsters. So far, the bike has worked perfectlly.

Welcome. It sound like the KLR is what you needed.
