 super I am new to KLR world. This site is Great. Bought my Blue KLR 650 on Thuursday. (wouldn't start when cold) Took it back this morning and had the KACR taken down .020 and it started good when I got it home. Snowing and 31 degrees, so I didn't put too many miles on it.

I bought my New blue KLR 3-26-08 at 7pm got up this am and it wouldn't start either so the dealer had to come and get it. I hope I am as lucky as you are. It isn't even as cold here in Denver.

Ok, so it isn't blue, but it is Green. I have a bunch of stuff from Happy Trails on the way too. I went through the cold start issue. It took Kawi Canada a while to get it straight. I think the dealer thought i was on glue when I told him he had to crack open the engine and grind on the decompression lever. But it is all good now. Also, the new KLR handles pretty good on snow.

Good guesses, but wrong on both counts. Saskatchewan is the answer. If you ever get here be sure to have a Bohemian (local beer).

Good to have both of you in the KLRworld....
Is it my imagination or do all "the plains" look the same in the winter... flat, snowy, and hazy? Glad you put the bikes in the picture.

 Welcome... I bought my blue '08 on 10 Jan. and have had no real issues. I did bring up the idle just a bit and charged the battery better than the dealer had a chance to and all is good. I did a 250 mile round tripper in the rain this past weekend and the only riding issues I had was crack repair oil. Those little patches are slippery. Once I realized what was happening I just rode 'em. However it did look like someones vehicle was bleeding to death. There were 12 inch diameter oil spots through the turns that got my attention on occasion. Wonderful ride.... I am considering a different seat...WOW!  Again... Welcome
