ok, my wife rides a 2014 v650. Previously, we've had klr650's. We traveled to Mexico/Central America twice on them for 3 months each time, 2007 and 2012. I belonged to as many klr forums that existed. Just traded my 2008 goldwing for the v1000. Also was member of all the wing forums and have been a member of advrider for about 12 years. Now can on post on the big forum?
