New blue 09

I picked up a new blue 09 today, what a great bike. My ride for the last 3 years has been an 08 KLR. I put about 30 miles taking the round about way home, and had a blast. Had to keep reminding myself that it's a 6 speed, kept stopping at 5th. Over all I think this bike is great upgrade from the KLR.

I've heard that the Orange and Greens were quick, but I KNOW the Blues pick up the chicks!

Reds are for tickets....

Blacks are for sitting still and looking pretty! If they ride they get too dirty...

I already have a Red KLR650, wife liked the blue the best. So I have a blue one, it was either blue or green.

Hope you keep your KLR. There's nothing like a 150 miles dirt forrest service road to encourage deep sleep and dreams of flying.
