New Dual Sport Noob
« on: December 06, 2017, 08:11:58 am »
Hi everyone

My name is Rudi and I just bought a 2008 KLR 650 and am looking to learn a bit from the guys that's been riding Dual Sport and Adventure bikes for a while. Looking forward to reading some trip reports and also finding new places to ride both locally and hopefully across the borders too.

I've started riding again after about 15 years of no bikes. Started again with some off road riding and have now also started riding on the road again.
