Dave from Colorado

Hello everyone! Dave here from Colorado Springs, CO. I purchased my 2016 Kaw 650 Versys LT back in October 2016 and wanted to find a place to learn and chat about these bikes. I already put 1400 miles on her since the purchase, and now that the weather is getting nicer Im looking forward to many more miles of mountain riding. Cheers!

Edit: I guess I should have added that I perviously owned both the KLR650 and Kaw Zr750S back in early 2004-2009

Forgiving...? Ever have your KLR on its side, handlebars LOW, somewhere out in the woods? AND you're alone?
