What's in my Garage? 09 KLR650

Part Time Retired

I bought my KLR while stationed in Seattle, WA back in 2012 (USCG). My house was just a short 30 min ride into the forest service roads of the Cascades and an hour away from the Olympics. I could ride all day and not hit the same road or trail twice. I miss the PNW and would be living there now if it wasn't for family and the love of VA, my home state. I retired in 2015 having served 25 years. My wife and I loaded my KLR into the back of my truck, loaded up our trailer and hit the road for a 3-month cross country adventure. We took the southern route which gave me the chance to ride some amazing places.

WA/OR desert
Red Wood Forest, CA
Wine Country - Sanoma, Napa CA
Monterey, CA, Big Sur
Sierra Nevada Backcountry (Over 100 miles solo in the desert finding gold mines and ghost towns)
Williams, AZ (The Grand Canyon)
San Antonio, New Orleans, Natchez Trace, Memphis, The Great Smokey Mountains (Deals Gap Tail of the Dragon)
Bryson City, And sooooo many other great back roads and loops.

Now I'm here in VA, working part-time to support my cigar habit, solo riding weekends looking for historic locations, scenic farmland and just about any destination that my rear end can handle on a KLR. I miss my riding friends in WA but I’ve always preferred riding solo. Once I complete a few upgrades on my house, I'll be in the market for a bigger bike that my wife and I can enjoy together. Something adventure capable and comfortably holds two up.
