Hi KLR fans,
I bought my first KLR today (2003, 16K miles, $2500, some farkelization). I'd looked at a couple of them using advice from the board & this one seems solid.
I've been away from motorcycling since 1975 (lets you know how old I am--I was a "bit" older than 16 at the time). I live in Colorado & have been wanting to take a tour of CO on the beautiful paved and dirt roads we have here.
My son is 28 and I want us to do a trip together (before I'm too old for this stuff). Figured I'd buy a couple of ~$2500 KLRs & outfit them for touring/camping/fishing/hunting. I've restored a couple of '80s vintage Kawi twins for my son to ride, so I figure the 650 single can't be too tough
Took the MSF course so I could re-up my motorcycle endorsement. Seemed to have lost it in one of the many moves I've made from state to state. Prolly need to find a dirt bike class to avoid broken bones. At my age, they break easy/heal slow....
I'm having the PO drop the bike off Saturday & can't wait to take it for a spin. Then I'll start doing the 'doo and whatever else needs to be done.
Looking forward to asking you all the questions that every KLR newbie asks.
Promise to look at the FAQ/stickies first, but apologies in advance if I didn't find it in the search function.
