Joe got a KLR!
Hey everyone, just bought a 2003 KLR650 yesterday and trying to learn more about them. The forums have always been the place to go for good info when I get a new bike, so here I am!
Little about me-36yo, got my first motorcycle when I was 15, so I consider myself a pretty experienced rider. Always been a Kawi guy, mostly sportbikes. I've owned several Ninjas over the years and still got two zx6r race bikes. Started doing track days and then club racing a few years ago at which point I got out of street riding due to safety and legal concerns. But I missed riding and couldn't afford to get to the track enough, so I'm back on a more "sensible" bike. The plan is to do more adventure/touring and less thrill seeking, which I hope the KLR will be good for.
I am actually planning on taking a multi day trip to Florida on it next week to visit my folks for Christmas. Gonna try to stick to exploring backroads. Am I completely nuts?
Anyway, hope to become a regular on here. I plan on doing a few upgrades, so I'll post up in that section soon. I'll try to read the stickies but any advice is welcome.
