Default I'm back...

Having sold my trusty 2005 1200 custom to purchase a 2009 Rode Glide I have since been a lurker in these parts. My 1200 was always a source of pride but I felt like it was too new and shiny to really screw with much. Mufflers, air cleaner and accessories, yawn. Following the age old delusion that bigger is better I moved "up" to a factory ordered 2009 Road Glide. More polishing, more accessories, more money. Anyhow, time passes and eventually I got tired of the big bike with its big bills and way too much polishing so I sold it on and settled for two wheel thrills on my KLR650. It's got the attitude of a puppy; let's go play, and it costs me next to nothing for maintenance, gas and, most importantly, insurance. I swore I'd never have another bike so pricey I'd feel compelled to carry full coverage insurance but at the same time I missed the character of a basic v twin. So I've been browsing old sportys for awhile and just had the greatest deal on a '06 XL883 come my way. 5700 miles, no mods, bare bones basic and just needing needing old fashioned tlc. Pulled it out of a shed, gave the carb a quick clean and some fresh gas and rode it home. I'm back.....
