New rider, New KLR

Greetings, all!
After riding my father's spare bike ('17 SV650) a few times, I decided to purchase my first motorcycle. I found a new 2016 KLR in green at a dealer a few miles away and swiftly picked it up the next day. After stalling it way too much to count (only stalled the SV once due to its assisted clutch) it spent the night in my garage.
I put 80 miles on it today, and am far more comfortable. I prefer the KLR to the SV due to the size difference (I'm 6'2" and 250lbs), and character.
I look forward to learning what I can from all of you!

Good luck with it! Enjoy it safely! Funny how different bikes have different brakes, acceleration, clutch, blinkers, lean, center of gravity, and on and on and on. It gets to be automatic on "your" bike and then up on something new you have to think again!
