I bought a KLR about 11 months ago, live just outside Concord, NH. I do most of my riding early spring and late fall, I work at summer camp so I am "stuck" on an island for the summer.

here's johhnie v, i'm living in southeast pa. just north of phila. glad to be on board. will pick up my 08 klr 650 later this week and am looking forward to being back in the saddle after many as a cage driven animal. planning to take lots of local to mid range on/off road adventures with my new bike and am glad to have such a large family of friends to share and learn from. first ? is what people think of extended warranties and the wisdom of tire/rim insurance? the extended is $370.00 for 2 years( 3 total with 1st year given free) and i think the tire one is close to $270.00 for three years. terms are pretty inclusive for both and transferable. i think they are standard kawa. offerings. that's pretty much for now, i don't have to commit until i actually pick up the bike. looking forward to any opinions. thanks, johnnie

Hello from Indiana, I am the proud owner of a Green machine. I have had harleys and others but quit riding years ago. All but 1 of my friends still ride hogs, and I have access to them when ever, fat boys , street glide {I like}etc.I bought my KLR due to gas prices hitting $3.00. for the ride to work and my boys are in the scouts. The high gas prices sealed the deal ,at 3$ it pays for itself and puts 60.00 a month in your pocket .which is quickly spent by the wife! She loves to ride but not on the klr.I am trying to aquire a Victory King pin for us. My mods include just a night vision box with back pad on the rack that I am able to install a fishing rod tube on one side and a gun rack on the other..Have dog will hunt!All my riding buds love to ride ther HD's with me ! I am going to install pipe and other mods this spring. Looking for a pipe that is not to LOUD! Any suggestions wba. I love this thing 5500miles on a stock seat this yr. NO in doesn't just sit in garage an look pretty! LET'S RIDE!

Talk about the new guy, giving up the racing lifestyle and wanting to get on something else. Raced speedway bikes for years, now giving that up for a more "relaxed ride". Havent gotten a KLR but in the market for one. Here on the coast of washington, just like everywhere else, o.k., almost everywhere, this sort of riding will fit just fine. Not to computer savy so hang with me.

Hello there. Los Angeles native since 1969, moved to Cincinnati in. 95 but moving back to Calif. I need my year round riding weather and legal lane splitting. First bike was an XL100. Never took the MSF course. I learned from the school of hard knocks. First ride in the rain (1985) and too much front brake made me do a superman impression/break dance on the pavement. I learned not to do that again. Haha. Been riding sport bikes in canyons since 86 with oodles of free tickets from the MAN. Track days would have been cheaper. Got my KLR650 in 95 and mostly been working hard and long hours with little riding time. Just turned 40 last month. US Army vet 86-88 Germany. I've ridden in Spain, Germany and Beijing

94 KLR,tank guards,sw motech centerstand,Doo done, african switch,mirror dampners, powerpegz, twisted throttle fuses, aluminum skidplate, Bigcee shark disc and jug holder and subframe upgrade, progrip grips,maier handguards/brushguards, avon distanzias,fmf q4 exhaust, headlight guard, handlebar risers, billet rear brake reservoir bracket and guard, dual star shifter,garmin 2820 gps, tmod,disc cover, pcv mod,corbin flat
