and the DR650 here is $5999 (http://www.motorcyclistonline.com/20...50se/95181/05/)

so yeah, the XRL is more but its not thousands more..is $400 or $700 really the deciding factor?

edit:
here's the mfg specs:

notice the weight differences....they call XR650Ls "big red pigs" but its the KLR thats the real pig, isnt it?
