Post New to dual sports!

Hi everyone,
Glad to find a site like this! Used to ride Harleys on and off, but now I'm into the practical aspect of things. Plus with gas being $4.00 a gallon here, I need to stretch my dollar like the rest of us.
So I picked up a 2007 with only 1300miles on it, and plan on using it for work transportation as well as weekend fun!
I have a couple buddies that got klrs as well, so well all be doing the weekend orv trails together, seeing what kind of shenanigans we can get into!
Hope to meet other dual sport riders than can offer tips and shortcuts as well, but trust me, I figure sooner or later im gonna eat some dirt! (not pavement!)

I'm the other guy Graybear mentioned. Been on and off Dual sports most of my adult life. They are the most practical bike out there and now with decent cc sizes they really fit well with dual use. Back in the day all they had were 250's and 350's. My kid is on his 1st Bike and it is an 06 KLR650 Mine is an 05. Seems to be lots of information here, nice forum. Greetings to all. Time to put a little gravel in my travel...

Welcome fella's! KLR's suck at everything, err I mean they do everything OK. If you have like-minded buds to ride with they're even more fun.
I call mine my grandpa bike, but I'm not selling it.

That saying would make a good sticker for the KLR. Welcome to the forum!

Worked up a sticker design on Cafe Press, ghostdog524. I think it would look good on the KLR:
