maybe next month?
Chris here. I am not yet a KLR rider but am researching through your experiences and expertise to see if: a) I want a KLR or other similar ride b) want a New one or a new-ish one c) if the KLR is all the bike I want/need.
I am in Salt Lake City, and as some of you know we are surrounded by amazing hills and trails. I run these trails and hills on foot, that's my passion, but sometimes I need to go faster or farther... and would like to take the supplies to stay overnight.
I am a Yamaha FJR 1300 driver, and I love what she does for me, but I need to get back to the occasional/often trail riding/adventuring that my big lady can't quite attempt. I believe the KLR is the perfect stablemate for her, and will help an "old man" revive his old motocross spirit. I absolutely love to roadtour on my Feejer, and fortunately my wife love to ride with me, but I need to push some dirt around, again.
The local dealers say next month they will have the 09s. I'll check around between now and then, ride what I can, and check around here for info.
