Hey everyone, I'm Matt. I recently purchased my 1st road legal bike, A 1987 KLR 650 For $500 :35a: I'm Hoping I can make some new friends and gain some extra knowledge about these bikes! Ive road and owned plenty of dirt bikes, but never a street legal bike!
Hey Matt and welcome to the forum. Where in Wisconsin are you? A buddy and I are gearing up our 2009 KLR650's for a ride down the Continental Divide in July. I don't claim to know everything about the KLR's but have learned a lot over the last couple years. You're more than welcome to join us when we hold our "tech days". This forum is loaded with great folks that have collectively done everything there is to do to the KLR. Don't hesitate to ask any question no matter how "dumb" it may seem to you. Like planalp said, be safe... Roads are a lot more dangerous than the dirt!
Dirt is the best teacher for street riding
in my opinion.
You have mc experience, and if you can drive a car,
sounds like ya get to ride to all the fun offroad areas
instead of the hassle of trailering everywhere.
The extra weight of a street-legal is worth the
trade off any day. The KLR is no motocrosser but
a great dirt n' gravel /adventure blaster nonetheless.
My wife's from Racine and every time we go up there I demand we stop here on the way into town so I can stock up on cholesterol without worrying about other things like family, graduations, weddings, etc. foiling my chance to visit The Castle.
