6'6" 273, think I've found my first bike...
Hey, great forum here. Was gung ho 2 years ago about getting my motorcycle license but replacing my car vs. buying bike was more important at the time. Anyways on my way again to getting my license and was once again looking for a bike big enough for me. A lot of tall riders looking for answers for that question, especially as a beginner bike. That's how I found out about it, someone brought it up in an answer of that in some other forum.
And eventually that brought me to a store I pass all the time today that has a variety of sport motorcycles out front. Asked if they had any klr650's, dude took me out back where they were selling a new red 2009 for exactly 5k. Niiice big bike. I sat on it felt comfortable, didn't take it for a spin, don't even have my permit yet, but as far as something that's not going to have my knees hugging my ears goes, it was pretty damn good. 5k is definitely more than I want to spend, but not necessarily impossible, I'm also saying this because I just got home and all I can think about is how bad I wan't it.
Anyways, great forum here, have learned a lot in a short time!
