New owner, first bike

I just bought a brand new 2013 Pearl Solar Yellow KLR 650 this last Saturday. It is my first and maybe last bike. It had 2.5 miles on it and now has 20. I love this bike! I looked quite a while at them and this model and this color just struck me.

Glad to see there is a forum dedicated to this awesome motorcycle! Hello from Lompoc, CA

Hello and welcome to the forums!
Good choice on the color, if I was in the market for a new KLR, yellow would definitely be my choice!

Welcome to the forum and riding. If you're the reading sort, check out Proficient Motorcycling by Hough. It literally could save your life.

Enjoy the new bike!
