We'll be down that way (and are several times a year) checking on retired parents in Wauchula in November and always take the bikes with us, would enjoy meeting up with a "local" to ride with.

Looks like there are a few of us in the area, maybe this winter we can get a ride scheduled and meet up someplace. If a few more guys see this thread and get the word out, it should be fun.

I have seen 2 Other KLRs in my area no chance to talk...yet. Less than 1% of my age group ride dual sport bikes and this area most all the bike riders are old...er guys. Young ones are on sport bikes, Busas Ninjas etc. or live on the coasts so seeing another KLR is like finding gold in a coal mine.

I ride with a few guys, no KLRs to wauchula on sunday now and then for breakfast, sometimes down to arcadia all Mom and Pop or Granny and Momma kind of places. A lot of good 2 lane country roads with cattle on both sides in that area.

Arcadia, Gibsonton, Riverview, Brandon etc. We meet at Peggy's Corral just N of Bradenton.. I ride with Paul Azinger sometimes when he is in town, he has a KLR too.. (and a BMW and a Harley)
