Just got a 2018 KLR650. Sold the Harley touring bike since I was only using it to run errands. Wife doesn't really ride along too often any more so I got what I wanted this time. Mostly my plan is to use the bike for local stuff back and forth to work or errands but there should be a few day trips in there too. I already belong to the Polaris ATV forum and one of the members there suggested I join here. I have only had the bike a week so there is more to learn.
I am retired but apparently not very good at it since I work part time for the local Polaris dealership driving the truck and assembling side by sides. Associates degree in auto mechanics and worked in a car dealership and Ag tractor dealership before becoming a cop. Retired after 28years. I work on older ATVs as a hobby and my wife and I like to trail ride. One of the reasons I decided on the KLR is that I can still work on it. No computer in there.
I added the taller windshield which I do like, the handlebar bag which I don't like and rear rack bag which the jury is still out on. Suggestions on any of them would be welcome!
