Welcome to the forum Kaiser6677. I hope that you get as many miles or years out of your new KLR650 as I have on mine.

There is a lot that can be learned on these pages!
Starting with this Thread, maybe you have read it already?

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

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

Great choice! You live in the perfect place to enjoy it too. I am just a little jealous.

LOL! You can always move! Bring and big pile of money and you can even have my house! I'm across the street from thousands of acres of riding at Windrock ATV area on what the Motorcycle riders call "The Devils Triangle".

We went to Florida a couple of years ago to get away from the cold and took the bikes down to Swanee River State Park for two weeks in February. After a couple of days, the wife decided to just ride with me. She didn't care much for the roads there. Everything was flat, sandy and 20 miles without a curve. We did ride over to the gulf coast. Kind of neat for us inland mountain people to see. Then the tornadoes came through and we were in a motorhome (better described as a "styrofoam box") under 100' tall pine trees. Interesting trip! Real relaxing!!! . It was 78 degrees most days but it warmed up to the 60's here at home while we were gone. Could have rode here.

Here's the trails across the street:

Welcome! Glad you're back on the bike after 10 years. I bet you're getting a lot of "it's like riding a bike"....
