Met another KLR rider today.... was very cool!

So there I'm sitting in the hair cut place with ATGATT. In comes this dude dressed much like I am. "Is that your KLR out there?" He asks. "Yes!" I enthusiastically reply. Turns out he just happen to park in the same stall I was in, had the same color KLR (2005), had the same luggage and was just about as cool as I was! He even had a Harley, like I do AND we get our hair cut at the same place.
It was pretty cool. Though we'd never met, we knew of the same people (he knew Tomato City). We think he bought his bike from the same person that my friend bought his bike from, too! Such a small world in the 10th largest city in California. He said he was just about to embark on a trip to Mexico. Lucky guy!
KLR's tend to make friends, don't they?!

I'm not sayin'.... and I'm not sharing!
I know they made at least two 05's.... but mine isn't one of them. Mine is a 2000 with 2005 armor.
