New to me KLR.....and Dirt!

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.


P.S. I'm in North Jax Airport area.

Hook up with the guys in the CADS thread, good bunch of guys.

Looks like it is pretty set up to tour. Its a nice time to head North and then West.

Ya know, if you parted out the Russell & the Pelican cases, you could buy a whole 'nother KLR.
