Bay Area Newb

Hey all - just joined the KLR family with my new 07, and I gotta say, I'm feeling really good about getting in "under the wire" with one of the originals, before the 08 redesign comes out.

Been commuting to work with it almost daily for last few weeks, and am having a blast doing that - really makes the commute fun.

Having moved here from the midwest (Wisconsin), I'm totally enjoying year-round riding. They're expecting a big dump today back there tonight, my buddy tells me, on top of the 4" of snow they just got. He was out riding just before that, and it was 10 deg F. (!). Gerbings and heated grips (K-bike) still wouldn't do it for me - more power to him.

Anyway, feeling better all the time about my decision to get this bike, enjoying reading up on all the tips/tricks you guys have posted here, and looking forward to meeting some of you for some rides.

-T

Hey Tom,
Welcome to the board. I'm glad to hear you are liking the bike. I know its a little out of your way but we have a ride happening in Paso Robles if you're interested.

Hey SLO - if that's the ride on 3/11, I don't think I'm around - DV350 is that weekend. Paso Robles is a bit of a hike from here, anyways - you ever do stuff a bit farther north?

Hey Scout in Modesto - you riding in the snow down there?? Saw blowing snow up on Tam on the news tonight; and as I was getting on my bike for my ride home from work it was hailing. Yee Haaaa.

Rain or Shine... I'm on my KLR!

(I don't know about any snow in my area. Perhaps I should turn on the news once in awhile)
