Thumbs up Old rider, new KLR owner

I just bought a new '08 KLR. I've been riding Harleys for about 20 years. My priorities have changed. (Kids #1) Since diesel fuel is killing me, I started looking for a new, less expensive bike for commuting to work. I did a boat-load of research and found a lot of great reviews on the KLR. I found forums filled with friendly people and thought I might like this dual-sport thing. So far, it's been great. And I don't have to polish the bike just because I got caught in a little rain.

Welcome aboard..... Congrats on the new purchase, I think you will find the KLR really grows on you the more you ride it.

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
