2018 klr 650

hello all
just got a brand new KLR 650. looking forward to getting good information and advice from my fellow owners. Normally i ride a Goldwing but it doesn't enjoy the dirt road i live on during the winter. so the 650 will be mainly my winter ride

I have to warn you to sell the Goldwing now while you can still get a good price for it.

I was on my second Goldwing when I bought a new 2008 KLR and parked the Wing in the garage to play with the KLR a bit. That 2008 KLR now has 100k miles on it and I have put 60k miles on a new 2011 KLR. The Wing has not moved an inch in 10 years.

Oh my lord.
I hope that you drained/sucked every drop of fuel out of the fuel tank which you could, GoMotor?
I have a Suzuki M50 Boulevard in my shop now which had a fuel tank "Full of Burnt Corn Flakes" for lack of a better description. YUCK. Crystallized 'corn squeezings'!
Only been 4 years since last ridden.
