I have one of each,,
The 1992 R100GS is for sale.As a good friend said,,"I like it, but I am not in love with it."
My KLR is not for sale. I don't like it,,but I am in love with it.
The simple difference as I see it is this, it's like riding along and having to stop to pee.
Doesn't matter who had to stop, or where we are,, somebody has to pee NOW!
The KLR is like lean up against a tree and pretend to be looking at the lake or mountain,,
and the beemer is like looking for a place to hide to be able to pull your pants down to pee and hope no-one is watching.
Stop and piss, or go thru a bunch of changes first.
you may really be looking for a DR650, or DRZ400. Neither one has the problems of the two turds mentioned.
