Congrats!

How do you like it?

I have had two Mini-Me's. I don't go long distance on them, 15 miles usually and I don't weigh much so I find the 250 to be an economical and fun way to kill time while I gather funds for a WR 250R.

You will not have buyer's remorse.

Make friends with:

http://www.klr650.net/forums/registe...339&i=64944278

....and purchase a Clymer manual.

You'll be good to go.

For many, many, miles.

Scott

Welcome aboard.

The only problem with the KLR has been all the darn farkles that I think I need.
I'm ready to turn over 40K miles here in the next week. It's been a blast.

I was worried that it wouldnt be powerfull or comfortable enough at highway speeds. But after this weekend all my fears have been eased. I think its going to be a great bike.

Hey Mb

Take care of that workhorse and it'll take you anywhere you care to go.

Another great suggestion I forgot in the earlier post:

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=742912

You may never need to do anything more than keep the air filter clean and the oil and oil filter changed, but just in case....

there's tons of experience and knowledge out there. Welcome to the family.

Mine's name is Red, a 2009 model, and we've seen 43,000 miles together -- thick and thin.

Regards,

Scott
