Well. Here I am. Bought an '06 Lime green KLR650 a couple days ago.
It's too tall, I am terrified of slowing down and stopping cuz I'm gonna drop it, and I feel out of control on low speed tight turns...... But I LOVE it!
Took it out for an hour this morning roaming the paved backroads in Scottsdale, and Rio Verde, AZ. It was awesome.
I've only been riding on and off every few years over my 53 year life....so I still consider myself a newish rider.
Maybe I had the wrong bikes.....cuz I was riding faster, smoother, and more confidently than ever before. Go figure.
