Howdy! My name's Nip and back in May '17, I traded my 2012 ninja 250 and bought my second bike, a little silver/red 2008 KLR 650 with a few basic (or necessary when you consider their importance on a KLR) mods already installed with only 10k miles. I'm hoping to do some more primitive travelling/camping with fellow dual sporters when the oppurtunity presents itself. I'm still semi new at the sport, but I'm crazy enough to try anything. I'm also hoping to really learn more about these machines I love so much since the KLR's simplicity allows for a total mechanic noob like myself to not feel so daunted when approaching work on it. I've grown to love this bike with a passion in the last few thousand miles I've put on it and I completely get the cult following now. I've crashed it pretty hard once (not my fault) and started it right back up. Even in below freezing weather she starts up, given it sometimes may take a minute. I really don't know what else to say just for my intro. Just excited to finally talk to some other proud KLR owners. Can't wait to post more as there is plenty questions I have considering I've got big plans for my time with this bike. And with that, I bid you adios amigos nuevo.

Welcome to the forum, Nip. How many miles/km have you put on your bike in the past 7-8 months?

How many of those were on graded dirt/gravel roads?

Thanks Pdwestman. Glad to finally be on the boards. Still only about 4k miles total as I haven't tried taking her on more than a 4 hour drive to Dallas and back and my normal in town commuting. Saving my miles for something cross country hopefully when I finish modding. Oh and maybe only 200-250 miles offroad. Pity, I know. I love offroading but unfortunately theres not too many legal trails around my neck of the woods unless you know someone with a ranch. Usually I ride uneven asphalt and look more for obstacles or mud pockets that I can play in. Exploring unknown trails/fire roads out here could always lead to a shotgun being pointed your direction unfortunately when you find yourself on someones unmarked driveway.
