I just did my rider course this weekend too. I can't wait to get my work week done so I can get back home and get my endorsement and insurance then actually ride my KLR legally.Just finished the motorcycle safety course yesterday. I spent all weekend on the 250 and loved it can't wait to get on the 650. I used to ride dirt bikes when I was a teenager. I figured for my first bike I wanted something I was familiar with handling. I saw all the reviews about this bike and I was sold.
