Central Sierra Mountains, California. Wildland firefighter with USFS. I'm 37, married no kids. First bike was an 81 XR80, rode it until my father told me I looked like a monkey riding a football. Number 2 was an 87 Honda XL250 (first enduro / DP bike) raced it, wrecked it, loved it. 3rd was an 89 CBR600 (the Hurricane) hated it, too fast and a cop magnet. Also had a 3-wheeler and a Suzuki quad. Went to college and was broke, no bike till now.
2008 KLR 650 Blue. Love the damn thing. New 7/15/08 already have 3000 miles. No issues (worried about the "doo", plan to replace asap). Installed luggage rack mounts from KLR650.com will use Pelican cases (1550). Riden on logging roads, single track trails, rural mountain twisty roads, city and hiway. Stock tires for now (looking at Ankanees). Want to FMF pipe and jet it. Maybe a Corbin dish saddle.
Been lurking around this forum far about three months and find you all to be very helpful and knowledgable (what else to expect from KLR fans). If the yellow lines lead you to the Yosemite/Oakhurst area let me know.
