Hi from Elizabeth, Colorado!

Hey everybody,
My name is Davide, long time cyclist and motorcyclist. I recently snagged a new to me KLR 650 and thought I'd join to learn more and contribute what I can.
It is a 2009 with about 19,000 miles, 685 kit, the Doo is done, the klx kit too, Cogent in the rear, progressive springs upfront, fork brace, a Conti TKc-80 in front, a Mitas E-07 in the rear. Tires are pretty much new, brakes at 80% left. Maintenance records since new, very well taken care of.
Took her on a 70 mile test ride earlier today and she performed well.
My last 2 bikes before this one were a Cagiva Gran Canyon and a Triumph Scrambler. The K lacks the legs of the Cagiva on the highway and the agility of the Scrambler, but makes up for it with its utilitarian Jack of all Trades, Master of None approach to motorcycling.
It is a good fit for where I live and you can't beat the $76/yr for full coverage from AllState, including uninsured motorist, $1,000 for gear, $1,000 for farkles and $5,000 for medical emergencies.
Overall, I am pleased with the whole thing.
Looking fwd to joining the various discussions, will post a pic once I am allowed!
Cheers, Davide.
