Hello all,

I just want to give a quick intro. I'm 42, and have been riding for about 33 years (23 on the street). I live in Owensboro, KY (hometown of the 2006 MotoGP World Champion...Nicky Hayden). Bikes have been a part of my life since I was born (Mom and Dad rode too).

I've owned about 40 or so bikes...I'm losing count. I have evolved to the KLR as I like it's simplicity, the ability to ride on/off road, and at <40 hp I tend to ride much more sane (that's an important factor when wife, kids, and mortgage are a reality).

About the bike, a buddy bought this 2001 KLR when the bike was a few years old. He did everything but ride the bike. He went overboard on farkles (about $3000), and didn't put a lot of miles on it. When I bought it in January 2011, it had just 3,000 miles.

So far I'm really liking the bike....runs good, rides good, handles good and looks good too.

Anyone close to me?

Ride safe,
