Hello all, Just want to introduce myself as I am new to Thumper Talk and new to the world of motorcycles. I have been an avid sport quad rider for the last 12 years and decided to take on a new challenge. I have owned several high-performance ATV's over the years and have fallen in love with the sand dunes and trail riding. I just recently purchased a 2005 KLX300 that I found at the local dealer as a brand new carry-over. I have always been a fan of green. The very first ATV I ever put a leg over was an old school Tecate 3, and I just recently sold a KFX700. My love for green combined with the sweet deal I got lead me to this KLX300. I ended up getting this '05 out the door for MSRP after paying 7% sales tax and adding the Pro Circuit slip-on and the Renthal Fatbars. I have had it out for one ride, and that ride put me in the emergency room!! I went to a familiar riding spot, hit a jump that I had hit a hundred times on my quads, and learned that given the same speed, a motorcycle will fly A LOT further than a quad! I have a lot to learn, and I also have a lot of bad habits to break that were aquired from riding quads for so many years. I am taking the bike out for the first ride since the accident today. Luckily, I wasn't seriously injured and the bike received nothing more than scratches. Here is a pic of my newly aquired KLX!
