    Hello all.
    I just bought my first Dual Sport last week. Its a 2003 KLR650 with 7400 miles, hard bags, top box, guard / hwy peg things, risers, high shield, and a Russell seat (as well as stock). And was told the Doohicky was done, but.....
    This is kind of a test for me. Im more of a street rider (ST1300), but after finding a great little XL350 over a year ago, I thought I'd give this a try.
    I'm not looking for any Motocross courses, but just off road is fine.
    I look forward to advice from you experts and some trail info.
