Hello, New guy from Alaska.
I've been checking out the forums for a while and I finally horse traded myself into a KLR. I have a Vulcan 1600 that I have been riding (still own) but being in Alaska I wanted to access more in the way of fire roads etc. Its a 2008 and it has seen its share of use. It has had two owners and has a total of 35,900 miles on it. It had a 685 kit put in it at about 22,000 miles. It looks like it has had some bubba-fied mods (heated hand grips basically taped on the outside of the grip.) repainted from blue plastics to black and the silver tank was plastidipped with grey paint. The front left plastic has a crack and the left rear is also cracked. It has crash bars and rear racks. It runs strong, no smoke or leaks and shifts good. I won't know how well it really melts until the snow melts come spring. I look forward to wrenching on it and fixing it up. I'll definitely be checking out this board for help and tips.
