New Guy from Oklahoma

Greetings from Oklahoma. After a great deal of soul searching, I sold my 2008 Versys and bought a 2009 KLR650. Basically, I just wanted something that would allow me to explore areas off road. This will be my 3rd KLR. I've owned several over the years, all 650's; a 1989, 2005, and now the 2009.

Just wondering, a couple questions, why have you gotten rid of the 89 & tha 05? Was the Versys not able to do trail use or are you a hard core bike beating off road type?

Inquiring minds wanna know

Welcome. I was holding out for an '09 Versys but they kept delaying delivery so I bought an '09 KLR. Never regretted it...

Thanks for the welcome. For me personally, the Versys never felt right in the dirt. As for the other two KLR's, I guess I just wasn't sure what I was looking for.
