Hi all, Frank from Jacksonville FL! Just (@ 430 pm) bought a new white KLR 650 2014 NE. I've got a lot to learn and hope to learn a lot. I'm a brand new rider and after sitting on everything else, nothing felt as cozy as the KLR. I sat on the F650GS (too short), VSTROM, was more than I wanted to spend and didn't know if I should have all that power, NC700X was comfortable and the DCT with ABS could work, but it would have put me near the 10,000 dollar range. Sat on some scooters Burgmans (400-650), nice, but since I plan on riding ATGATT, I just don't know how it would look on a scooter, in addition, it was big and more expensive than the KLR. Sure, they kept talking about storage, but I figured I could add the storage when I needed it, and take it off when I didn't. I'm just looking for some fun. No immediate plans to commute, but who knows! Might just use it for going back and forth to Publix and the beach!
