    Moved here a year ago and have done some fun solo rides around WA. I see a lot of guys/girls out on KLR's and am looking for someone to ride with. Mainly weekend getaways, day trips or overnighters. Camping or hotel.

    Still want to see more of WA/Oregon.
    Let me know!

    Where abouts are you located,,, WA is a big state:D

    Depending on where, there is probably someone close by for quick trips.

    Sorry, forgot to mention that. North of Seattle in the Everett area. But I don't mind riding wherever to meet up.

    Thanks!

    Right here.
    Try starting a local facebook page as well, or Meetup.com. Both has worked well for some of us here near Portland.

    Don't just ask for KLR riders (cheap bastards; I know because I am one). Ride with anybody. There are plenty of riders up in your neck of the woods and they periodically post here in the PNW section. Thee's also a "Where to Meet Riders in the North Sound" thread or something like that (although it seems inactive).

    Keep your eye out here and you'll find rides and riders.

    Available all (3) days. Bike is set up for 80/20. I like taking a little dirt now and then. Eventually want to go for week rides when things slow down @ work.

    Let me know, I'm ready.

    I thought the whole point of this thread was because they ARE cheap bastards. He's looking for someone that will split a cup of coffee and a sandwich to help cut cost on a road trip.:lol3

    A real KLR rider will be looking for a well-off Beemer rider in order to sponge lunch (even if it means having to listen to boasting masquerading as advice).

    Live in the Skagit Valley 30 miles north of you. There are several KLR riders in the Valley and Bellingham.

    The initial reaction is to laugh, then I realize I moved in with the well off beemer GF, the tires on my KLR right now are take offs from her Sir Towel... and laugh some more.
