As of 5/11/2013 I am the proud, happy owner of a new, green KLR650. Picked it up at Smokey Point Cycle Barn. Went through COSTCO and got a good deal. Now if I can just score some days off. Three short trips are planned this summer season, 1) Olympic Loop, 2) San Juan Islands, 3) Tonasket, Republic, Cerlew. Fall will be back to the Alvord Desert, this time on the bike.
