Your riding season and days can be longer and start earlier, plus ur riding season goes year round. As long as there is pavement around.... Bc of the great protection from the berg.

While that may be true, the guy on the berg will be better protected from the elements and be more comfortable. Meaning he can ride longer and more often on a the berg than the klr. While wearing less gear.
The berg is like a form of motorcycle Viagra.... U hate it when people find out that's ur deal, but the fact is, you put out! A lot more and more often, Haha...
In all seriousness, I have a Helix and a Sherpa, smaller version of Klr650.... The klr650 will not be passenger friendly as the berg. And the berg may make u have to pass the local motorcycle roadhouse in shame and park across the street.
U could get a Honda helix. It would be cheaper than a burgman and its pretty close to the same thing just not as big as the berg, it's 250cc.
Or just keep both....
Man saying shit like "And the berg may make u have to pass the local motorcycle roadhouse in shame and park across the street." freaking amazes me. I guess I'm lucky, I don't actually give a damn what other people think about me when I'm riding a scooter. I'm not getting into a pissing match with you or anyone else about "manliness" but it's going to be a cold day in hell when I let other people dictate to me what to ride. I know exactly what the OP is trying to deal with, he's realized there are better ways for him to enjoy riding and he's going for it, ego be damned. If you feel the need to park your scoot in the dark I'd say it's time for you to sell out, go buy a do-rag and buddy up to the assholes who're dictating to you how to live. What a pity.
