My Trusty Steed

Today I bought the bike I am going to ride to South America.

I had to get my agents (my parents) to do the transaction for me, however with the wonders of Skype I spoke to them soon after they picked it up. The man I bought it from lives in Northern Alberta, so he drove part way down to Calgary and met them in Red Deer.

My new bike is a 2006 KLR650. It’s not had any modifications done to it, so I have my work cut out for me when I get to Calgary.

Here she is strapped to my parent’s trailer.

Now there’s just the small matter that I’m not actually qualified to ride it yet…
