New 2009 KLR 650

Brought my new baby home today.
A new 2009 Blue KLR 650.
Named it "Bruiser"
$5820 OTD.
We're a happy household because the wife approves of the new purchase.

I brought mine home yesterday. It was about 4 degrees out but I didn't have far to ride. Today it won't start so it's going back to the stealership on tuesday. I got mine for $5712 out the door and they had to take it out of the crate. I just hope that my luck today is no indication of things to come.

ps.... It's red.

I'm cold if the temps drop below 70.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Good onya! I love my blue '09.

BTW, I've commuted to work in 29 degree mornings. Not too bad. The hand guards deflect the wind and if you tuck you legs tight against the tank it provides a lot of wind protection, at least in my opinion.

Count me in!!!

Feb, 9 2009 is the born on date of my new Red KLR 650. I have a total of 2.7 miles on it right now. Traded in my Honda V65 for this bad boy. Can't wait for the snow to leave. I took it up the drive way in the snow and got out of hard roads with it. I think I'll wait a few weeks before planning a ride.

Also new to the forum. Actually my first post!
