Back on two wheels

  1. It's twenty-five years since the last bike (XL250) and I picked up my new KLE500 on Wednesday. :LOL:

    I got sick of sitting in traffic for 35km each way each day. Hopefully this will mean quicker and more enjoyable commuting.

    I found the site last week doing some research on the KLE. So far everything I read has checked out. Very pleased with the bike, it seems like the only people who have anything bad to say have not ridden one.
  2. Congrats! :D

    Welcome back to riding!
  3. I owned a 1996 KLE about 18 months ago and found it a pleasure to ride, nice comfy riding position and light on the fuel bill. Heres a pic


    I had a look at the new ones before I bought my GT650R, found them a little bit smaller than the older ones but alot better equipt. Happy riding poppy.
  4. Welcome aboard. :beer:
    Like you, I also took a 25 year break. Went from riding dirt bikes at 15 years old, never sat on another bike at 21, to road now at 46 years of age. To think I have wasted 25 damn years doing this :driver: , when I could have been doing this :biker:

    Welcome Back to 2 wheels :dance:
  5. Welcome back to the club of secret head nods. :grin:
  6. Welcome to NR.. :grin:
