Hello all. My name is Doug and I live in Hampstead NC. I have previously owned motorcycles of all types, including a Klr-650, which I sold a few years back. I have been without a bike for nearly a year (all time record) and have turned my attention toward the Klr-650 again since it was probably the single most fun bike I have ever owned. Past rides include LowRider, Softail, Concourse 14, DR-650, DR-200, Shadow, CBR-600, etc...

I am in my mid 40's, interested in medium distance touring, camping, hooliganism, and some occasional intermediate level debauchery.

I have come bake to the KLR from having Triumph and BMW adventure bikes because they were too much of everything. The KLR is so simple so welcome back and enjoy it.

welcome to the forum but more importantly welcome to the over 40 KLR-club where we are getting back to something we enjoyed or finally can afford it for the first time. Lots of great people here.

Ride Safe
