Finally got one!!

I first fell in LOVE with the KLR 650 back in 88 when I saw my first one. Since then I took time to grow up and raise a family, which I'm still doing. I will be 42 in 2 days and I just got my bike! I am ecstatic!! Truly I feel like a kid again. Just want to tell you wanna bes, don't give up the dream, hang in there and it could com true. Oh yeah mine is an 03 with 8800 miles, picked it up for $2600. It is the "ARMY" green that most don't like but I love it!! Glad to be a part of all this,Carl.

Congradulations on the bike.

I see a pattern of 40 somethings and KLR's.

I think you guys are having some kind of midlife crisis.

Ok, Me too.

Have fun with it!

Welcome!

Don't feel bad about the color. Just do like me; Keep telling your bike how pretty she is and she'll be good to ya. Besides, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.................




Keep Loving Rides!

Man, the '03 in green is the greatest color scheme they ever had, just MHO.

I'm not biased or anything...

Congrats!
