Congratulations on your first bike and welcome to the KLR world! I have been riding for nearly 30 years now and have owned many different types of motorcycles. Some of which were street legal dual sport type and many were not. I have ridden many bikes from little bitty up to really big, even had an opportunity to try out a KLR back about 20 years ago. But never had the pleasure of calling one my own. I kind of fell in love with the KLR all those years ago, even though I didn't have one. I always told myself that I would get one some day, then life happens, have a kid, economy collapses, get back on feet, buy house, start a business blah, blah, blah. So here I am 20 years later and FINALLY! I got my KLR and I could not be happier. I still haven't quite figured out what i is about this bike, but it is by far my most favorite of all time. It is an addiction in the purest yet most obscene way. I can't explain it!
Enough about me. Again, congrats. This is a great forum with a great bunch of guys. You should be able to find the answers to your questions here (should you have any) and don't be afraid to ask. There are lots of people willing to help.
Does your bike have the "Doohicky" upgrade? I'm sure you have heard about the horror stories by now but it is a critical component so we always ask new KLR owners just in case! There are a handful of other items on the list of "do's and don'ts also but the doohicky is of utmost importance. Here's a link to DPellitiers' list of new owner mistakes
I hope you are able to take advantage of the beautiful weather we are having in Ca. this week! I live about 35 miles north of Sacramento and it was in the 70s. I snuck in about 2 hours of riding this afternoon. A perfect day for riding!
Again, welcome to the wonderful world of KLR.
