New Member - 2011 KLR

Hello to all - got my KLR new in July 2011 and have just over 4100 on it. Try to use it as my main form of transport. I'm in Henderson NV and and have made short trips like to Seligman AZ, but so far mostly in town and a few dirt roads. I have completed a few mods and love the beast. Blue Silver with black tank. I have had quite a few different bikes but with the KLR I find I am quite conscious of the height weight thing at real slow speeds. Over 5 MPH it feels really nimble, but at 55 and over mine feels like it is getting light in the front end. Maybe its me as I am way up in the years. As I use it for everything I have a lot of luggage on it - all cloth. Anyway just wanted to make contact with other KLR riders who share the passion.

Contact made and welcome!!! Lots of good info here so take your time to browse around and ask some questions.

The KLR takes a little getting used to at speed due to it's high profile, especially if you have been riding cruisers. Not to worry, it's safe at highway speeds.

Again, welcome to the forum.

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.

Yes welcome.

You got some great riding areas up there in Nevada. Might be asking you some questions for our upcoming Tri-State ride next month.
