Late Introduction

Hello All,

I've been visiting this site since I joined back in Aug. 2014 but I didn't realize I hadn't posted an introduction. I've been riding off and on since I got my first dual sport at age 15, it was a Yamaha 175. I lived in upstate NY and would take long trail rides leading me down into Pennsylvania. I ended up moving to street bikes and currently own a Honda ST1300 and a 06' KLR I purchased last Aug.. I bought the KLR to get back to my motorcycling roots. I'm 53 now and now live in north Alabama. I hope to join some members of bama rides and other dual sport riders in the area get back into some back road and trail riding.

Bienvenido, Bamaham! While I'm not down south, if you're ever in the neighborhood of Utah - and it's not the middle of winter - I'd be more than happy to go for a ride!

I got my own KLR to get back to my "riding roots" after having grown up in a small town in California. I learned to ride on a 1971 Suzuki TS90, and honed my skills on a 1975 Suzuki TC185. Loved the 185!

After getting my KLR, it was like returning to an old friend!

It seems like 'back to our roots' of riding is an ever more common Theme Here!
Enjoy the ride and we'll enjoy the camaraderie, with you.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
