New guy from Raleigh

I've been lurking for a few weeks now. It's time to set that right now that I have a sense of the forums and have learned a bit about the KLR.

I'm a long time rider who happened upon a great deal on a 2017 KLR. I picked it up from a talented mechanic who really enjoys "the build"
Here're the list of mods applied before I bought the bike. Pretty comprehensive I think.
EM 685 Kit
EM Doohickey & Torsion Spring
EM KLX Carb Kit
EM Secure Oil Cap
16T Front Sprocket
EM Sprocket Nut
EM Drill through subframe kit
LED Front & Rear Blinkers
LED Brake Light
LED Flasher
LED Hazard Switch
LED L/R flashers mounted in dash
LED Offroad lights switched from dash & on relay.
LED Cyclops low/bright headlight bulbs
LED dash bulbs
Tusk Foot pegs
JNS Foot peg Lowering Brackets
Moose extended shift lever
Ricochet skid plate
Ernie Bell extended shift lever
Rear license plate bracket delete
Rear license plate relocated to fender with LED lighted frame
Pelican top box with SS hardware
Air-box de-snorkeled and L Mod
AIS system removed
EM AIS block off plate
Rox Risers
Pro Taper CR Bend Handlebars
Aftermarket Grips
Lower dash with DC and USB, wired to relay.
KLR Dash (upper)
Zero Gravity Double Bubble dark windshield
FMF Q4 Muffler
FMF Power Bomb header
Thermobob 2
SS front/rear brake lines
D-FLEX hand guards

I'm in the process of adding Wolfman Bags, SW-Motech crashbars, DirtTrack rear crashbars, tankpads and a mount for my GPS (which will move between my bikes). I should be damn close to the perfect medium weight ADV by the time I'm done. My KLR (I call it "Donkey") is a great complement to my GS ADV which I'll reserve for longer trips and "spirited riding".

I look forward to participating in the community and perhaps being an actual contributor as I learn more.
