I was gonna say don’t be in a hurry, I started riding again 3years ago after 20 away. At first my klx300 seemed a challenge to ride but as the reflexes came back I’ve upgraded twice more. Being a change in style from your road bike I’ll bet the KLR feels much better next yearNot sure how I missed the alerts.
I'm on the Idaho/Washington border and will be keeping the KLR a bit longer to see if I can work through the issues. I've got $9k into it with purchase, registration, and mods. If the market goes crazy for these things in a couple of months where I can get my money out of it, then I'll look at selling it and getting a mid-size cruiser.
