My new KLR650

It has been about 25 years since owning a motorcycle but I got the urge to ride once again. The reason it has been so long is that I almost killed myself on the first one I owned. I use to own a bike that would really go fast, I've aged out the need for speed so this time I decided on a bike that would go to all those out of way places. I have been getting out and going somewhere every weekend and with a full size 4x4 pickup it was costing me a killing. Now I can get out and go for under 15 bucks and it really feels good.

Good for you Wooden! Thats a great choice for a "get back to riding" kinda bike.

[QUOTE=tom pullings;21340829]Here's my little fleet.

I really enjoyed my DR350SE,it did freeway,and got dumped on many single tracks,it was like a dog that you leave all day and wags and smiles when you return.

Woodenveins, good to have ya back in the fold. (Dirt bikes fall down too, so careful on the road!)

This is totally unnecessary and a waste of virtual space I already had the pic as my wife wanted it. This is my ol' 91 ST1100, STick. I've owned her for almost 20 years (Oct, 2013) and have put on the majority of her 210,135 miles, She had 23,000 when I got her in '93.

Took this pic on Sunday evening, just after 6PM MS (That's Pacific Fast time for those of ya who have to change yur clocks. )

I had just pulled into the garage after a 700 mile drone from Fort Sumter, NM to Kingman. Conclusion of a 25 day, 9700 mile trip all over the country side. Moonshine, IL; Aurora, IL; St. Anthony, IN; Ootewah, TN; Austin, TX; Key West, FL; Marysville, GA (look it up, neat town); Savannah, Charlotte, Myrtle Beach, Charleston; Lawrenceville, GA; Stecoah, NC; Thodosia, MO; Aubrey, TX; Olney, TX; Lubbock, TX; Fort Sumner, NM; home.

(The whole purpose of this trip was to get a 'burger at Moonshine. It became more than that. )

It looks like it would have been very easy to pop a wheelie with all the load on the back. I would definitely have saddle sores after a trip like that. Most of my journeys away from home will probably be one day trips but I can see myself someday taking a really long one day trip in the near future. I love riding in the mountains of Virginia with all the twists and curves. Where I live I can go north and I'm in mountain territory and if I go south I'm in alot of flatland. Haven't went south yet but I would like to go around the Asheville area when I do plan a two or three day trip.

tons of great riding, both paved and dirt, in North Carolina, and the Iron Horse Moto Inn at Stecoah makes a great pivot point. I stay there every time in there overnight.
