2001 klr650

So I am new to the world of adventure riding, but I have always been the adventure type. I just recently picked up a 2001 KL650 for 2k in Orange County, California and shortly after got my motorcycle license.

Here is the beast in all it's glory, I call her EL Vaca Verde (The Green Cow).
I got a new whip! #adv #adventure #klr650 #kawasaki #thecow #needailydriver #builtforadventure #advtothebeat

After I picked it up, an oil change, spark plug, and new brakes were in order along with a little TLC. My next project will be to add auxiliary lights to "el vaca" so I can get a little more visibility at night, I am very excited as my wiring kit will be coming in tomorrow!


Let me know if you are around the Inland empire, lets get a ride going on!

Welcome! Hope you enjoy the new ride. Just a thought but you may want to post this in the KLR650 thread. Most likely you will get a better response. Just my two cents for what that's worth. Have fun and congrats.

Perfect!

But please don`t say "el vaca". It hurts my ears even more than "un tamale".

Carry on- enjoy your ride
