New member - Ramona - need KLR

12 posts in this topic

Hi everyone my name is Arnie and I have a riding problem. My problem is I am stuck at work typing this and I want to be riding.

Anyway I found out about this site from a member, he was talking about dual sport riding and I got the bug again. I have been street only riding for the last few years and decided to get dirty. Been riding for 40 years including plenty of dirt and asphalt (AFM) racing but now I just enjoy the ride.

I talked my son (USMC) into a KLR650 instead of a Harley so we are planning a 7 day ride on KLR's when he gets back from his MEU next June. I am looking for a low mile KLR 2000-2007 - he already has his...I keep it warmed up for him :)

List of bikes owned (as best I can remember)...couple I still have

1970 rupp roadster (lost my cherry to this one)

1973 Honda xr75

1970 Rickman Montesa 250

1974 Yamaha YZ 125A

1976 Honda CR 125

1976 Yamaha YZ 125

1981 Maico 250 (sweet ride in it's time)

1983 Yamaha YZ 490

1985 Honda CR 500

1986 Yamaha YZ 490

1986 Suzuki RM 250

1988 Yamaha YZ 250

1985 Kawasaki KLR 600 (oh yeah)

1990 Suzuki DR 350S

1998 Yamaha WR 400F plated (too much fun!)

1950 BSA 500 ZB34 (how did they ride those?)

1978 Harley XLCR

1982 Suzuki GS 450E

1983 Kawasaki GPZ 1100

1985 Harley XR 883 Storz

1999 Harley FXDX

Eagle Mike is always a GREAT resource for the KLR. I'm sure both Tommy and Pryo would point ya that direction at some point.

Thanks, Tommy (Bluefin2na) is my buddy from the saltwater fishing world that gave me the heads up on this site. He has been helping me find a bike. We got the one for my son but need one more. After riding my sons I see they really haven't changed much since the 600 I had in 85, the VW bug of bikes.

One of Arnie's first SDAR posts--maybe the first.

See you on the trials, Arnie,

Thanks for digging this up, DD. It put a smile on my face because it optimizes his personality. ****, I'm going miss him.
