KLR won't do it for me. Fine for the off-road ride but not for getting me there, especially if a long distance. Yeah, $21k doesn't sound like someone who is much interested in selling! . Good advice on bike choices! My thought was to get something that I could sell with minimal loss if it wasn't getting used very much but something I could keep indefinitely if I embraced the style. I understand that there is a significant learning curve but the intention is decent unpaved roads, not wilderness/single track stuff. (Too old for that.) As I mentioned, a KLR or DR650 probably wouldn't do it for me in the long term because many of my probable destinations require a LONG highway ride to get there. Always a difficult choice to make. Ideally, it would be nice to get a "learner" bike of some sort to ride locally and hone a few skills. I will give that some thought and see what might be available locally. Part of the reason for another bike is having something to ride if the other one is down for maintenance. A little variety would also be welcome sometimes. Haven't done more than sit on it in the showroom. I think they would allow a street demo ride but an off-road test would be out of the question. Bike definitely isn't too tall for me - I can easily flat foot it (6'3", 34" inseam). No more top heavy than my FJR for sure but something lighter might be better.
