Hello from Eden

I've had my first street bike, the KLR, for about 6 months now, but really dont like calling it a street bike. I love the bike but gettin kinda tired of ridin solo... NOT COMPLAINING just think it would be cool to have someone say "sure you can make it back up that hill, go see whats down there" and then help me when i cant! I might be harder on my KLR than most but thats why I play with Jeeps and now KLRs. My motto has always been "find the weak link and and beef it up". So far I've left a mirror somewhere in the woods on a midnight mudrun with some local 4-wheelers (and they were toooo slowwww still fun tho), cracked the plastic on the left side, and broke a chunk off the factory skidplate (soon to be remedied. I've dropped it several times in the woods and my prayers as it falls have been answered! One that my scrawny 165 lb a$$ can pick it back up and two that i dont have to push it home! Well thats pretty much me... If anyone lives or rides near eden nc give me a shout. I know some trails that lead to twisties that take ya to more trails!

I just was wondering if you lived in "the garden of" and it sounds like you do when it comes to off-roading!! Hope you find some riding buddies soon!!

Welcome to the forum!

Might want to get some crashbars ASAP. It will save money in the long run... Didn't say if you have the Gen 1 or 2 but the Gen 2 radiator is about $700
