Allow me to introduce myself...
I am a former Harley rider, new to KLR's. After battling cancer for a bit and 2 years free of it I decided to get another bike.
I could not decide if I wanted a thumper to play with or a Harley to travel.
I was talking to a group of KLR riders in my little tourist trap town and they were telling me how a KLR does it all, I was thinking "what kind of freaks go for THOUSANDS of miles on a dirt bike?"
After thinking about all the times I got a Harley stuck in mud or wishing I could go off on a trail I decided to see what all the fuss was about.
Picked-up a 2011, 1 owner, (doubt it was ever in the dirt). All the crash bars, hard tour pack with no saddle bags. 18k miles with not a scratch on it.
Owned it 3 days now, added 700 miles and LOVE IT!!!
Any advice on things to watch for? (I am a tech).
Any other duel sport riders in my area? Trinidad Co.
Thanks for allowing me to ramble on...
