Early midlife crisis, right on time

I purchased my first duelsport 5 years ago, a KLR. I lurked around here before purchasing, looking at a wee. After several thousand miles, and many of those 2 up, and an "extended test drive" in Ecuador on a v-strom 1000, decided it was time to have some more power. I purchased a v-strom 1000 this summer and decided it was finally time to join. I reside in the wilds of Wyoming, where dirt roads are abundant.

Welcome to forum!

For me Eastcoaster it was a cultural shock when we saw a 55mph speed limit on dirt road in Wyoming first time.

Speed limits on dirt roads here are really just a minimum guideline.

Welcome sir.....mount up some Mitas E07's and really tear up those backroads with ease, they are also one helluva long lasting and handling road tire too.
