Ok, I looked at the 2008 model KLR last year but decided to get a Yamaha V-Star instead. This tax rebate was used to purchase a brand new 2009 KLR. It's the sexy red color. I just took delivery of it yesterday and was very excited. Today the bike refused to start even though I used full choke and it was over 35 degrees farenheit. It turned over nicely but only backfired through the exhaust a couple of times. It's going back to the stealership on tuesday because I just didn't feel like throwing the bike on the trailer by my self today. I was pretty excited yesterday but today I'm pretty upset. If it's something simple I'll kick my own butt.
