2 Years Later I Finally Took The Plunge
First off, thank you to everyone for all your information, technical support, stories, and sharing the lessons of your experiences. Iíve spent 21 years riding strictly on pavement, and I had become bored to death of asphalt. So after 2 years of researching the KLR world, I finally took the plunge this week and bought a new, red, 2008 KLR 650. My wife actually encouraged me to get it because she was sick and tired of hearing me talk about the bike and the forum stories. I spent more time researching this purchase than anything else in my entire life, but during the past 2 years of reading the forums I lost 103 pounds and had to rehabilitate a catastrophic wrist injury to make sure I could even attempt to ride a bike like the KLR off-road. So, now the adventure beginsÖ
Whatever makes you happy...
I refuse to tip-toe through life only to arrive safely at death.
