Hello and thanks
Hi folks. I lurked for awhile before I decided to buy a KLR and this forum was probably the most helpful resource I found.
I'm early old-man crazy, so have patience. I've ridden all my life up til about 12 years ago when a back injury grounded me. First bike was a Simplex Servi-Cycle - google it - that'll tell you how old I am. Last was a Sportster that I sold after the injury.
Anyway, decided a KLR would be a great around town, beach, backroads, caliche hills ride. It will probably travel with the camper (Alaskan on 3/4 Ram 4x4 Hemi) in a year or so when my wife retires.
Found an '05 w/3k miles that had only road miles, proof of basic maintenence and 9+ looks. Good price, (I think - $3k) so now I own it.
Thanks again for your help and advice. This is a community I'll enjoy visiting often and hope to contribute every now and then.
