Anything made by man can be bent or broken, regardless if it's on a Honda, Yamaha, BMW, KTM, etc. There is no perfect bike. We as riders just need to find the best overall bike that meets our...

The V-Strom 650 is kind of like a twin version of the KLR. Have had both, and the V is much smoother, more road and 2-up friendly. It can still handle some basic dirt, but is definitely more road...
