New KLR Owner

Hey Everyone. I'm new to the forum and just bought a new 08 KLR. Blk/Grn. I rode it yesterday from Southern Cal to the Reno area. Essentially, a 600 mile ride with 100 miles on dirt road/trail through the Saline Valley Road, skirting Death Valley, into Panamint Valley, then into the Saline Valley winding up on Hwy. 395 in Big Pine. Middle of nowhere. Really. 16 hours in one day. I'm ready for the 600 mile service. Great highway manners for a thumper, competent off road. I've been riding for over 40 yrs (I'm 52 this month!) and my street machine is a Yamaha FJR1300. Wanted something to ride the fire roads up here in the Sierra.
