Just picked up a new 650 Adventure

This thread really serves no purpose other than to brag about how excited i am about the new bike i got today. So much fancy technology and good handling. I think she'll fit in well with my KLR.

Congrats! I just got mine last friday, and I'm keeping my KLR too.

It's just time to give the 03 KLR a break and let the 650ADV take over commuting duties.

Can't wait for a few days off to chase some squiggly lines on the map.

I got the exact same thing yesterday too! I'm pretty sure that I'm as psyched about it as you are. Enjoy!

I'm a week in and someone's already dinged the paint on the tank with their stupid hog cruiser and I've chipped the powdercoat on the right pannier banging it against a turd plastic scooter that parked too close.

I swear, people that travel on two wheels people are degenerates.

Congrats!

If my wife was amenable to me owning two bikes at the same time, I'd still have my KLR too. I'm completely happy with its replacement though. :bigthumbup:

Just got mine on Friday!!!

I just got it to take advantage of the 0% financing. I've done 520 miles already as I want to take it to NY on Saturday and I want to get the run in over with. I took two trips from down to Skyline drive today. One at lunch time (extended lunch) and one after work. 280 miles in total. The bike is amazing for touring, twisty's, commuting, shopping etc etc...

It is my 24th motorcycle and by far the best bike I have ever had!!!



by the way that's one of my kids, not me.
