Got my first KLR yesteray, in NorCal

Found an '07 on a local sale board with 4k miles, and got it for a great price. Other bike is a Gold Wing, so a nice alternative. Lots of nice logging roads and forest trails in this area (about an hour northwest of Lake Tahoe). Took a little detour riding home last night. FUN!

welcome to the forum

the KLR / wing combos seems popular, guess they complement each other well.

KLR/Wing

They are just ABOUT as far apart as 2 bikes can get! A good mix...

Congrats on the new bike and welcome to the forum!
A few folks on here have wings and KLR's, they seem to make good stablemates. Best part is how much lighter the KLR feels after you climb off the wing!

Welcome. Sorry, your KLR doesn't have a toaster oven (kidding).

All motorcycles DO have an ejection button as standard equipment. It goes off randomly and cannot be disconnected. Have adventures!
