Greetings everyone! I'm a new member who lives in beautiful Montana. I've been a rider for just over two years now, and just bought my first KLR last month. My first bike was a cruiser, but I wanted something that I could take on the mountain roads and go exploring, and boy did I find the right bike for it! I see why they are so popular, I love it. It's an '08 and has been cared for well. I've been spending a lot of time in the garage getting to know it before taking off into the back woods too much, and am really impressed with the bike and how easy it is to work on. It's great that these forums exist to help us new KLR'ers out with maintenance questions, farkle questions, etc. Ride on!
