I am a Cochise County resident now throwing myself in the mix of ADVRIDER (formerly only on KLR650.net), looking for some occasional small group rides in the area as my two former riding partners have moved. Former on KLR's, TTR's, XT250, and ??. I am a rider that did things the KLR was not supposed to do (you can run a KLR dropping oil for at least 80 miles after LANDING high center, breaking the welds on a aluminum crash plate, and puncturing the crank case! ) but am now on a 2012 VStrom Adventure that I have farkled out a bit. This was my "roadish" bike, but I have cleaned out the stable (making room for new toys) and am now NEEDING to get the Strom on trails after I swap tires early March. I am not timid nor inexperienced, however I do have some things to work into as I am short and the bike is tall, as well as this is the largest DS I have owned (touching the ground on hills is usually not an option). Between this thread and the Tucson thread, I hope to meet some great people and to continue riding our awesome trails in the SW. I am hoping to squeeze in at least one really good ride in each month, however I bow hunt A LOT (sometimes off my motorcycles) and coach the MSF BRC/BRC-U, so some months have more freedom than others.
