Welcome to the forum Fallingspark! Hopefully you will enjoy you time here. Looking forward to seeing pics of your bike. And for what it's worth, it's raining here in Wisconsin right now!

And getting smaller every day it seems. My sons buddy just flew in from London last night for a visit!

I have not been to England yet, but it's in the plans. Closest I've been was to Ireland (4 times). First trip was to ride my mountain bike from Dublin to Galway Bay and then took each of my three kids there when they turned 18 to show them where our ancestors came from. Dads side of the clan is from the County Wicklow area and moms side is from Loughrea, County Galway.

Man, I could go for a "real" Guinness right now!

11 more posts to go!

So what does a 27 year old KLR 600 cost in England? Any idea what a new 650 goes for? Do you have many off road trails to ride in the area?

So roughly $1500 US funds. Guess that isn't too bad since it is in good condition and likely a collector. Is this your first motorcycle?
