new to site .. not klr


hey guys. im new to the site but not the awesome klr. i had the barbie edition .. 94' 650. i loved the bike. never had a single issue with it. i had a set of usd klx 650 forks on the bike and had the trees machined to accept the factory gauges. the heaviest rear spring your could buy ( which was way to stiff ). this bike took a beating here in Pa. it was treated more like a trail bike than a " dual sport ". anything from wide open dirt roads in the mountains to really tight rocky single track... we did it all with these beasts. i ended up selling the klr and bought an 07 husqvarna te 510 which suited the kind of riding i was doing much better. but now my buddy and i are talking about planning a trip out to custer SD and taking klr's. i guess after i sell off a few of my other bikes that i dont need i will be in the market for another klr 650. im thinking either the old style in green .. i think it was 06 and 07 that used the "kx green ". or if i can come up with a few extra bucks i may spring for a new 09 in blue. ... ok i guess that about enough for now. ill be checking out the rest of the site and posting around. scott

Welcome man. Good to have you. My folks live in Carlisle. I've spent a lot of time in your neck of the woods. Caught a lot of fish.
