Well, here we go...!! I was starting to feel just a little like a gnarly troll. Because in all actuality I have not owned a Kawasaki since 1978, when I bought a new 250 dual sport, enduro, or whatever they called them back then. A few motorcycles since, mostly touring bikes, when from out of nowhere, came this serious interest KLR650's. I think the reason is that in my garage there is this gaping hole between an '05 FLHT and a 1980 Yamaha XT250 that I purchased a year ago, a sweet little unit that got me all nuts about the dirt again.
So, after looking all over this corner of the world, I found an '07 KLR650 a couple hundred miles from the house. It now fills that hole between the other two bikes. And I'm stoked. I've had a chance to put a few miles on it, and am quite pleased ..........goes down the hiway good, and felt quite secure on a local rutted Forest Service road up to a fire lookout. Glad I got those rides in, as it snowed last night and will be white a long time now in our mountains.
I'll post pics as soon as I'm able, and thanks for all the info I gleaned as a troll. It certainly helped me in looking for a bike. John
