Greetings from Monkton Vermont

Greetings and salutations to the collective.

I'm retired and have been riding street bikes for more than 47 years, dirt bikes and mini bikes since I was 8. I just bought a 2017 KLR650 and it is actually my 3rd KLR650. I also owed 2 Gen 1s back in 2000 and 2004.

My other most recent ride was a 2003 Honda ST1300. I had a Kawi ZRX1100 for many years and loved it but I started feeling a bit long in the tooth for sport bikes and decided to get something more comfy but still sporty to replace it.

A few months ago I read an article about the KLR650 going out of production and I just couldn't bare the thought of not having another one. I went in search for one and found myself a pristine 2017 KLR650 with lots of farkles and only 1550 miles on it.

Outside of motorcycles I enjoy, fishing, aviation, fishing, astronomy and fishing.

Bikes I've owned over the years, though I'm sure I've missed a few": Honda ST1300, two Kawasaki ZRX1100s, Suzuki DR650, Suzuki DRZ400, XL1200 Sportster POS, two Gen 1 Kawasaki KLR650s, BMW K100, Kawasaki 750 H2 Triple, Yamaha 360 scrambler, Kawasaki 350 Bighorn, BSA 441 Victor, Bultaco 250, Penton 125, Hodaka 100 Super Rat, and a few more...and oh yea, my new to me 2017 KLR650.
