Another FNG

Hey gang,

just picked up an '08 KLR and I'm hoping to learn from you all.
I been riding and racing various scooters for 44 years now, so I'm not really that new. lol Been riding cruisers and touring bikes for the last few years and I needed to get back in the dirt. My last off road bikes were an 1974 TY 250 that I rebuilt and a 1973 TS 400. Sold 'em both a few years ago.

Looking forward to being part of the group.

No, I had the Suzuki for 10 years or so and the Yamaha for 4 or 5.
The TS only had 1200 miles on it. I didn't ride it much, it was just abut perfect and I knew if I spent much time on it I'd wind up putting it down at some point and it was too nice of a vintage ride to tear up.

I had always wanted a trials bike and when I found the TY it was trashed. I spent some time doing some R&R on it, and then rode it around the property for a while. I learned to do some cool stuff on it, and then I wanted to pay cash for a touring bike I wanted so I sold those two and a Honda 1100.

I have pictures but photobucket is down, and I don't think I can post pics here yet anyways. lol

Thanks for the welcome.

HI Gator!
You need to have 15 posts before you can post pictures, an anti spam thing. Looking forward to seeing some soon!
