noob from NE illinois

Hi everyone! Picked up a '07 KLR w/5800mi on it a couple of weeks ago, all stock, even the tires seem to be the original. It's my first bike after a 18 year hiatus and still waiting for my MSF course completion card to come in the mail. In my teen years I rode a Checkoslovakian made 1965 Jawa350, which I crashed. Hoping to learn everything about my new toy and meet some great people here!

Check out the TWAT (Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail). It goes from the IL border to Lake Superior. Never knew there were so many gravel roads and trails in this state! Very nice ride that can be done over a long weekend.
