Talking Banished from *********** ended up here :)

Got back into two wheeling after a 10 year hiatis. Did a lot of research and ended up buying an 08 blue KLR. Gotta say I love it! I rode dirt bikes as a kid and in my 30s had a couple of HDs. This is by far the funnest bike I have ever owned. I like doing my own wrenching and this bike is right up my alley. I look forward to meeting new people and doing some trips in my beautiful home state of Oregon. COME ON WARM WEATHER!! Rode it to work today and it was 12Deg out! Got the Eagle Mike Doo sitting on my desk, SW Motech crash bars on the way, and a Stebel horn that I still need to find time to install. Anyway here is pic (Like nobody has seen a blue 08).

HAHAHA! Welcome to club banned, I'm also a member. Nice 08 and looks like you have some great riding there.

F that other site, the owner has a you don't donate, you don't matter attitude. Like we can't live without his site or something... LOL!!! I'm still alive and much better off not having to deal with his harem of butt buddies.

New here too. Bought a 2008 KLR 650 in February. In right now for the 600 mile service. Love it. Really fun.

I am (and the dealer where I bought it) having trouble finding heated grips for this 2008 model. Also it seems Givi has not made an adapter for the new bigger rack. Has anyone found a source for heated grips that will fit a 2008?

Thanks for the warm welcome! Acatually had some warmer weather tody, 12 when I rode to work and 44 on the way home. Yea I couldn't believe I got banned when all I did was point out some mistakes in a post where he was arging with another member (no cussing or anything). Anyway, long story short, after my ban I emailed him back and told him to "blow me Biatch". Musta been mad cause I can't even view that site now.

These grip heaters are universal, and work with any grip of your choice. Some people haven't had good luck with Dual Star, but that's where I got mine, and they're shaweeet.

I know what you mean about pronouncing Puyallup correctly. You should see what most spell checkers come up with. I bought the thing up in Enumclaw (I know... another funny name. Wait until I figure out how to work Issaquah into the discussion. Oh! I already did). They are also a big snowmobile dealer and they tried several kinds of heated grips and could not get any to work.

Oh well... it was 54 degrees today so maybe not a problem until fall.
