Back in the saddle
I have looked at forum in past year several times after buying 1989 KLR650 from a friend of mine for $250 in summer of 07 and now joined for more info. Made stupid mistake of not replacing tires and tubes right away. April of 08 front tire blew out going 65 and did a 180ft header down beautiful Hwy 16 outside Llano after riding the Willow City Loop. Now in process of fixing bent parts, bike damage very minimal considering the slide it took. Now have new full coverage helmet (only way to go when taking it on the chin down the road), new jacket, and new gloves. I will highly recommend the Alpine Star riding hightop shoes. They stayed on where my old Redwing boots would have been chunked and my toes would have been a wreck. Look forward to info and reading when not riding.
