Bought an 08 KLR today.

I couldn't resist. I've been wanting one of these bikes for a long time and finally come upon a fair deal. At least I think it was a fair deal. I bought a light blue and silver 2008 KLR with 6500 miles on it. It has heated grips, black Barkbusters, clock, outside thermometer, taller wind screen, Happy-Trail guards on the back, small Pelican case, center stand, 3 aux. outlets, the trickle charger thing & gold valve cartridge emulators. I paid $4600 for the bike. Rode it home in a light rain this afternoon. The skys cleard and took it around the dirt trails at Lake Hefner here in OKC. Got a few good photos too. Now, if I can figure out how to load a couple of these photos.

Welocome Dean.
You can post pics after you post 15 messages. (company policy) I can't post from my
computer and have been told to send them to a photo website like Photobucket, then they
load and post just fine.

With the extra stuff on your bike, providing it's all stuff you like, you got a fine deal
on the cost/ vs. mileage. Not great, not bad, right in the ballpark of a fair price.

I'm 43 and wanted a KLR since they came out! Messed around on a DR650 and XL600
over the years but finally got the KLR and couldn't be happier!

I hope you are too.

Lata, Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeap
