Wink Hello from So.Central Mississippi

Greeting all,
Glad to find the forum online and looking forward to building my ride with you all and also meeting at some rides.
I am Albert from Heidelberg, MS just off MS I-59 exit 113. I retired from Law Enforcement Career in Maryland and a Long Military Career as well. I moved home because I like my freedoms and love to see the country on two wheels. I am in the process of buying a 2018 KLR 650 which I postponed cause of Pneumonia I caught at the turn of the New Year. I have recovered and on with the KLR plans as soon as possible. I started riding in Pastures on my family land in the late 70's in Mississippi on a Yamaha GT 80. Being one of the only three kids in the county with a motorcycle, I learned to ride in the woods real fast as the local PD did not allow us to ride on the public dirt roads. I look back now as it's was a blessing to know that between the Marine Corps and Law Enforcement Motor Classes I was always ahead of my class in riding. ha ha ha I am a Ham Radio Operator who like to get out in the remote and make radio Contacts also while riding. Just want to tell the group my quick sit rep and log the first of the 15 posts. Feel free to contact me and I will help anyway I Can but remember I am new to the KLR platform but rode many bikes over the years. My current ride is a 2012 H-D Electra Glide Police which I customized into a Ultra Classic. I try to do all my mechanics but my body is wore beyond what I will claim. Happy Trails and great Rides,
Al "Motorman" McDonald
Semper Fi "Never Quit!"

Welcome to the forum Albert and 'Thank you' for your service to this country, both in military & civilian positions.

I remember when I'd of given my left n** for a Yamaha GT80 in the early 70's!

Welcome Albert!

Worth mentioning... I got my year end ‘16 in January last year with 0 miles for a $1,000 discount. Might still be deals around like that. Worth calling around to save some dough.
