Hello from Florence, Alabama

Hello everyone. My name is Randy or lazeebum. I live in Florence, Alabama. Been back on a motorcycle since 2006. Been riding a cruiser but got bit by the dual sport bug. Messed up and rode a KLR and then traded for one. I have a 2012 red and black 650. Besides playing my guitar and hanging with the grand kids, this is another thing I enjoy. I have already installed the 16 tooth sprocket, but am hanging on to the stock one for off road. Here is a picture of my new toy.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Sit back, relax, and check out the content.

Nice '12. Enjoy. Did some work over in Decatur once at one of the refineries. Looked like there was some good riding areas there.

Also, check out the Guitar thread here.

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

Welcome to this little corner of the KLR world! Grab yourself a tasty beverage and enjoy the stay!

That's a purdy little '12 you've got there! Nice and clean...

...almost too clean.

Congrats on your new ride! I've got the black/gray '12, and love the bike! I've only put on about 4,800 miles in the first year of ownership - and that's taking out about five months for winter.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

I think I am gonna like this bike. The 16 tooth mod increased my fuel mileage a lot. Before the mod I was getting 41 mile per gallon, after 47. This was a lot of stop and go, with some interstate and dirt roads thrown in.
