first bike ever! KLR crazy!

hi my names gus I live here in McKinney texas which is just north of dallas. im 41 and always wanted a bike but the mrs said NO!!!! well some kinda way I convinced her to let me have one. after quite a bit of soul searching and looking a german bikes I decided the KLR is the only bike for me! I looked and looked and found a really pretty 2010 in thunder blue with 12k miles. I couldn't be happier with the bike. I cant and haven't even ridden it lol im going to take the cycle course really soon and get this thing on the road. glad to be here gus

Hey Gus, not far from you in Sherman. Sounds like your'e on the right track, definitely take the MSF class and get a copy of Proficient Motorcycling by David Hough. I have a copy if you need to borrow.

Glad to have you aboard.

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