What happened to the KLR?

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.

Welcome!

WV is 'bout near perfect. Great mountains and farms, great curves (watch the gravel) and great folks. I have spent 3 bike vacations there so far and I'm not done yet. And I married a gal from Wayne county!

WooHoo! That's the home of The Bluegrass Preservation Society. I ALWAYS make it over to visit Larry at L & L Music, Ewell at the BPS, and when I get up there next I'll be in to visit Vey's Diner.

Here's a shot from a 2008 trip, when I had my Nighthawk!

I bought my 2008 Versys at Lockard's back in the day. They had it sitting well up into summer and I had a KLR in good shape that they knew they could sell so we were able to make it work. Never looked back. Loved that little red bike. But she had to go to help pay for my Tenere. Still miss her though.

I'll holler next time I'm through Gassaway.

Which KLR did u trade in I bought a used Red/Silver one that only had a few miles on it and maybe a scratch where the P.O had hit it with his trailer or something.

Heading down ur way a week from Friday (the 8th).....Heading to Fancy Gap first day, then down the Parkwar to Robbinsville for a couple of days.

Were going down 33 to 16 at Arnoldsburg to 60 at Gauley Bridge to 20 at Rainelle to Princeton. Jump on I-77 for the last 60 miles to Fancy Gap. 431 miles total and about 8 hours excluding stops per mapsource. Day 2 is about 313 miles to Robbinsville.
