New KLR Rider

Live in Knoxville,TN 40 minutes from the Dragon, Foothills Parkway and the Cheroholla Skyway. Originally from Levittown, PA. but have been in TN for 23 years now. Finances dictated me selling my Kawasaki Nomad for now. Can't live without feeding my 2 wheel addiction so was looking for a cheap hold me over bike and always admired the KLR. Found a good deal in Tampa and took a $43 flight down last Weds. and rode back my 1991 KLR650. 750 miles on it ain't the same as on the Nomad, but it's a blast to ride. I'm a cruiser kind of guy ( easier on my bad back) but I think I'm hooked enough that I'll always have one of these in the stable. I like to kid around, so I'll apologize upfront for any feelings I hurt. Don't take anything I say serious. Dave

2 pics from on the ride home. 1 on a 2 mile sand road in Florida heading to a boat launch and the other on Hwy 28 between Franklin, NC and Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort.

Hello Dave. We'll be in your area, well close anyway, May 17-20. If you can come out and play I will not be the only KLR rider in our group! We vacationed in Sieverville (spelling error I'm sure) last summer. Our 7 year old is DEMANDING we do it again this year!

I'll have to see if I'm back from out west and caught up on work by then, but it's a possibility.
