Wow.... Really drives home the fact that you can spend $23,000 and get a great ride and a source of great travel but it only takes a couple of grand to have a true adventure...... I like it!

The dream garage for me?

My Strom, an 1800, and either a XL650R or a KLR650...

:applause: I beat the snot out of my SP400 and had a blast doing it. I'm immensely enjoying wearing out my 1500 now too. Tore up the St. Helens Windy ridge road with Greg on Tuesday and scraped some metal off of the bike doing it. :cheesygrin: Bikes are made to be ridden. :action:

Ain't no shame in "ugly or slow!" Or cheap, for that matter.... this bike below, ridden by Dr. Gregory Frazier around the world on a financial shoestring, is now in the National Motorcycle Hall Of Fame Museum. Hundreds of people born without a silver spoon in their mouths have done the same. It's the Swiss Army knife of motorcycles...available to all...doesn't do anything extremely well, just everything pretty well... I love mine, and when it croaks, I'll get another....

I bought a brand new KLR650 in '01, and me and it did not get along. back then it was my only bike, and it was not nearly as comfortable as the Vulcan 750 I traded for it, so about a year later I traded it for another new Vulcan 750. I now have a Yamaha XT225, which is an excellent trail bike, and will go almost anywhere. It's a little small for someone my size as for as highway riding goes. I also have a Honda Rebel 250 that several people want to buy, I might just sell that and get an '07 or older KLR650. Don't really care for the '08 and up, They put to much bodywork on it for a dirt bike. Looks like they may have been trying to copy the BMW GS series.
