That's a trick my friend uses. Unfortunately he needs to constantly reload a fresh "active log track". And it slowly disappears as the day progresses.

DR650, KLR650 and KLX250, those are all small bikes. Good if you 5' 3". Better to start off with a bigger bike.

I'm 6'5", I feel your pain. But for a RTW bike, I'd just buy a DRZ400S, put a tall seat, tall handle bars and risers on the bike. I could be biased as I have a DRZ.

One a more serious note, read all the books you want. Seat time is the best way to see, feel the differences a motor, suspension, ergonomics, etc make.
