New old guy

Greetings All,
One day while hiking along the Natchez Trace I saw a KLR rider at a rest stop. He said that he really liked the KLR and it was versatile and FUN.
So after being without a motorcycle for a few years I decided to jump back in and waddya' know... I bought a new 2017 KLR650. It's halfway broken in now.
I live in Franklin Tennessee and would like to meet up with locals for Adventure rides out in the countryside. Meaning including some off pavement fun like dirt roads and trails but not hardcore Enduro stuff or singletrack. I'm 61 now and will keep my motocross bikes and scary stuff a memory!
Thanks, John

You can't be "old." We're the same age!

Welcome to the forum, Woody.

Sounds to me like you need to check out this group. They are pretty active in your region.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
