Thumbs up Happy Day in the city of Kyle Tx.

Since I was able to sell both of my old Hondas in about 6 weeks I decided to treat myself to a new toy. One I did not have to work on to ride but just ride & farkle it out.

Here is a thread about the 2 Hondas

Here are the pics of my brand new 2015 Kawasaki KLR650 with only 3 miles on it. It was a left over from a dealer down around San Antonio.

Loaded up & ready to go home.

Great find, Steve, and I imagine an even better deal. Load it up and head to STC in May. The Gravelhala has your name on it!

I've had the KLR for a few months now and I'm almost done turning it into a proper adventure bike.

That looks really good, Steve! The panniers and that custom rack worked out well.
