KLR was too street oriented for what I wanted and heavier.
DR-Z400 was not able/safe for interstate speeds, but lighter. DR650 was just right. Not to heavy (324 lbs. dry weight), air cooled (i.e. easy to work on) and was more dirt oriented than the KLR. Did 270 miles on Sunday and was extremely pleased. Send me a PM if you want my phone number and I can tell you all about my findings.



Thanks for the info. I will send a PM.
