After months of sifting through used ads I finally found a KLR that I decided to pony up the money for. It’s a 2001 and has 15,000 miles. Numerous aftermarket mods that I was planning on doing myself already. Ironically, the bike has Alaska plates. Looks like I’ll be taking her back home!
I am super excited. Getting a new bike is pretty much better than Christmas for me. A new ride to get used to, new offroad adventures and skills to learn. I was getting kinda bored with my Ninja actually. It will feel good to feel like a noob again.
Also, next week I will be taking a 10 day road trip through California to see the MotoGP race at Laguna Seca. Then I’ll be heading up to Portland, and maybe catching an Andrew Bird concert in Berkley on the way back. More on all this later, but in the mean time here’s a video of me riding the KLR for the first time:
