First time on the highway today
Re: First time on the highway today.
So I was riding around today on my new KLR 650 and thought today would be the day I take it on the highway for the first time.
I stayed in the right lane and got off at the next exit. Did it several times today. Im a very new rider so it was kind of a big deal to me as I was a little nervous. I have heard of people saying they had concerns of this thing maintaining highway speeds so also wanted to test it out as far as speed. I got up to about 70 mph or so and maintained between 65-70 at about 4000-4300 rpms. Being tall I had to lay down just a bit because it was very very windy today. I had a short burst or two up to maybe 75-80mph just to see how it felt.
I didint really try to even go that fast but was more focused on my riding than the gauges so was actualy suprised to look down and see that I was going that fast.
I rode for about 4 hours today and really enjoyed myself. Went into a couple empty parking lots to do u-turns, Did some city driving today also(lots of start/stops)Was about 55 degrees, sunny but again, very windy.
