Sounds like a classic case of KLRlessness.

Only one prescription for that.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

IMHO, the best way to fix this feeling it to get right back on the horse again. There are so many older version KLRs on the market down there for rediculous prices it would be insane if you can afford another not to get one and fix it up the same as your old girl. Let the memories begin all over again!

I have the same feeling about my old 1947 Cj2a....I sold it thinking I was done with it.....I miss her all the time. I also have a buddy who we used to ATV with, we both sold our bikes a few years back. I never thought the thrill would be there again. He bought another, I test rode if for him.....Damn I miss those days too now! If my neck to take either of those two activities.....I would on the hunt today!!! And not typing to you at this moment!!!
