Being retired I don't commute, but the 250 is my regular ride for everything else. What's most important to me is how much more relaxed I am on the 250 over the 650. The 650 was very top heavy so I was always fearful I might drop it whether it be while riding trails, or even in parking lots. And, I knew I couldn't pick it up by myself when I did drop it, (dropped it 7 times in the dirt).

I'm glad I made the switch.

Ditto, Im a bit disappointed at how uncomfortable the KLX is on long trips, but the fact its a mx bike, its what you could expect. On the KLR I could make 750km in one day easy. That being said, the KLX is soooo much more fun in the city and on the trails. I havent dumped it yet, which speaks to how easy it is to control on the trails.
