New guy from AZ

Back on a bike after about a dozen years. Ive been bike packing across the southwest for years now. I bought a jeep just to haul bikes and sleep in. One hobby leads to another ,and now here I am. This past June I attending overland expo west all by my lonesome. It was the first trip on the bike, instead of years prior in the jeep. I kept it solo, and camped alone out in the woods. Zero group rides thus far, but already solo rides here and there. Mostly quick over nights, learning the loading, off road handling with weight.
Any how, here to learn, laugh and get inspired!

Been doing day trips and quick overnights all summer here in az. That means mostly up north to cooler weather. The bike has been a blast and quickly fell in love with it. Now that cooler weather is here,Ill be doing a phase 1 type list of upgrades . which pretty much consists of all the things that have been done a million times over by other klr owners. Cheers!
