New 2009 KLR Purchased Today

Thanks to everyone that helped me sharing their experience and advice. Today I closed on and rode home a 2009 Red KLR $5,100 after tax plus they threw in a full-face helmet.

As a beginner rider I must say I was pretty scared when I first got on the highway driving from Long Island to Manhattan but after the first 20 miles I was loving it and doing 60 (at 4,000 rpm). Only 2 scary moments when I did not lean enough in turns coming pretty close to the line. The first time was just not pressing/leaning enough and the second time was lack of concentration. Thereafter - smooth sailing.
