My new 2016 KLR

After a lot reading and the back ground that have on motorcycles I DECIDED to buy the KLR 650, I do have 3 Yamahas dirt bikes
but I was looking for a Dual sport bike. I love this bike so far it only has 220 miles I am on reserve right now. I did hit reserve on 195 miles I will be riding it until I run out of Gas need to find out for sure how far I can go before I get into serious off road ridding. it is kind of high for me but hopefully the shocks will lower after a few miles. I am still on the breaking mode I need to ride it for 600 miles no passing 4,000 RPM so I am following the Manual. Can not get on the freeway yet because 4000 RPM it is only 67 M/H

I guess I should have read the manual, I road a wheelie out of the dealers parking lot.

The feeling of the wind in your face can lift your heart.

Good bike choice.

I've had mine (2015) for 6 months. Now that it has stopped raining I'm looking forward to taking it up to the sierras for some trail riding. Anybody know of any group rides in the Sacramento California area?
