New Ride


Not quite the kind of bike I usually post about, but after a 13 year break without a motorcycle, I finally got a new one. Kawasaki KLR650. Quite happy so far. They call these bikes dual sport, as they are supposed to handle on both pavement and dirt. That's the kind of riding I did years ago on the BMW, and it's my favorite kind of bicycling terrain as well, so this should be a good choice. It will mainly be used to supplement the bicycle for commuting and the odd weekend camping. It will be easier to get the Mrs. or one of the kids to tag along if they know there is less pedaling involved. :^)

I have to say I'm a bit jealous. I miss my old Honda NX650 which is aging in my parent's garage.

Don't forget to head up to Michaux and 'pre-ride' all those great forest roads.

Blasphemer! You must pay penance by suffering a period of shunning and no beer!
