New KLR650 rider in Colorado
Not new to motorcycles but new to dual purpose motorcycles. Most of my life I've owned road bikes but I let them all go about, maybe, five years ago now. I sure missed having a motorcycle around and had been thinking about a dual purpose machine for a long time. Did a fair amount of research and found I liked the KLR650 a lot. So, couple weeks ago I visit a local Kawasaki dealer just to look and find out more about the KLR650 in person - just a reconnaissance missing mind you to pick up some brochures etc. Well, there it was a 2015 Candy Lime Green KLR650 with the KLR handlebar bag, KLR tank bag, rear KLR tail case, and the KLR saddle bags just THE bike I had been drooling over for months. So I spent about three hours overall at the dealership purchasing the bike and looking into all the cool stuff they have. I didn't take the saddle bags but took all the other KLR bags. I also had the dealer install the Moose Racing skid plate and the crash bars and went back a week later to get the bike - this was a week ago today now. I have all of 14.2 miles on it. It was 32 degrees when I went to ride the bike home and it's really been too cold to ride over the week I've owned it. This gives me more time to look into adding cool accessories to my KLR. I sure look forward to getting lost on my KLR in the near future. Got a new pair of FirstGear riding footwear today and plan on a new Shoei GT-Air real soon. My other Shoei is 24 years old now.
I would post a picture but this forum doesn't allow you to do that straight from your computer only if you have a third party image host account and I don't do that anymore.
