New Baby In The Garage

Fresh from the delivery room last week, and boy am I excited to finally have a KLR! I've been a Kawi-man most of my riding life, with a few interesting side trips, but was always seduced by flash and speed instead of practicality. Wisdom does come with age though. After buying my first ADV bike three years ago (Buell Ulysses) I have now found my new obsession. I still have the Uly because I love it too, but now I can really explore the back woods and trails in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin. I'm glad to be a part of the family, and look forward to learning and sharing here!

Holy Crap Vinnie! Thanks for the heads up on this. I am going to make every effort to be there with a friend or three. It's practically in my backyard.

That feeling doesn't go away with KLR's in my experience.

I have that giddy new bike feeling every time I swing a leg over the seat.
That was 6 years and 19,000 miles ago. This is my last bike.
Rode literally every type over the years and keep coming back to the dual
sport thumpers. I had KLR pics on my walls when they first came out and
should have gotten it then. The XL won by having a local Honda dealer.
Then came the Nighthawk, CB 750, coupla HD's, DR 650, Goldwing, and now
I finally have the motorcycle I love.

Have fun, learn, teach, ride, repeat.

This is my son, with whom I am well pleased." ----God
