New to KLRs & new to forums

Hello,
My name is Dave and I just bought a 2009 KLR. I have ridden off road for some years and this is my first experience with pavement. I live in Sonoma County, CA and have enjoyed the first couple of weeks on the bike. The bike has been more fun than I imagined and I live in an excellent place to ride it. I used the information and stories from this forum to make a decision to buy the KLR over some other choices. Thanks for the help!

Let's see... 3" of snow on Sunday, and 4" of snow today means that I should be able to ride snowmobile soon..

If nothing else, my sled is faster than my KLR..
