First Bike KLR: Greetings from Iowa

Hello all im new to the motorcycle area but not to the scooter area. This is my first bike and I have my permit but will have my license by next week im 19. I own a 07 KLR 650 with 12,xxx miles. I have already learned to ride it. Im putting new exhaust on it tomorrow. I chose this bike because I love the way it sits. Im not trying to tell you my whole life story but. I am 6'7 and kinda slim 215lb and I sat on as many bikes as I could haha and no luck but once the beauty of the KLR I hopped on and a instant fit haha.

Congrats on the new bike and welcome to the forums!
Guessing at 6'7" you don't have much of a problem flat footing it at stops!
