Noob from NE NC/VA Beach area

Hello everyone...

Never owned a street bike before, but enjoyed riding dirt bikes occasionally. The KLR's just seem to make sense to me.

Bang for the buck, on/off road capability, mpg...out of the box great...

But I'm 6'1" usually between 235 & 245 pounds...is this bike too small for me? haven't sat on one yet, but when i return from deployment, I'm seriously thinking of pulling the trigger on one of these....

i eagerly await your responses and advice.

Bryan

I'm new myself but at 6'2 and 275 lbs the bike doesn't feel small to me at all...

Bike is tall, suspension underpowered.

I recommend to just go and sit on one.


Best of luck.
