I didnt realize the beemer did a 450 enduro. maybe its new, maybe not. Thats not my point...



I was curious, went to their site, andlooked her over... Its mindboggling to me that a 450 is over $8000 and only has a 1.8 gallon tank!



I couldnt even get lost on that lil bit of fuel, let alone get home!:cheeky1:

Well, (a 450 is over $8000) it is a BMW, which of course means "Broke My Wallet"

Well, for my way of thinking (ya I know-warped sometimes:D)



The KLR650 with a 6 gallon tank @55mpg, way more horsepower, and lots of money left in the wallet is the way to go...



right CJ?

BMW 1.8 gal for off road only use sounds reasonable to me

but it seems like a KLR on-off road would fit into my posible riding habits a lot better

either one of those bikes would need a better seat befor i would attempt to ride very far

True, you do a better job of handling a dirt bike on the pegs. I believe BMW bought Husky is where they came into the small off road bikes.
