My name is James and I've been a long time "window shopper" of bikes. I've finally got over my own fears about riding and I plan to purchase a KLR650 from my boss in March who no longer rides his anymore.
I have my permit but I'm waiting for the MSF classes to start again. I found this forum in order to learn more about the bike and see if there are any beginner group rides in my area.
I've always been in love with the KLR and I'm excited to start riding. I feel like a little kid at Christmas. I don't know if that's normal....
I like being outdoors and my hobbies include cigars and mountain biking, although not at the same time. :-)
Anyway, enough about me. Thanks for having me and mucho gusto!
