V Max again (this one bounces all over the cheaper part of my list)

Any other resonably priced bikes I should consider? Now if I get a local job that ties up all my time, who nows what I will get. VMax or some standard that is cool and could be used as a track bike. But for now traveling is still on my mind.
Dennis,

I will give my KLR two cents. After riding mine all year, I would say it's a great bike for local ADV, dirt tag, work commute, and going on 100-150 mile rides. It is cheap and bulletproof. Great in the dirt. However, you start putting on big miles and it sucks. It ain't no long haul highway bike. Buzz's the shit out of ya.

You have the same dilemma I do. I want to have a bike that's more comfortable for the long haul, that I can take Sue with me on it, and still do all the dirt I see. Ideally, I would go with a 1200GS or GSA as well, but the price........ I have considered a Wee myself for the next bike. For the riding you seem to do, I think it would be the best choice. Two Jerks did have a slightly used 650 there.

On another note. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Be thankful that we are healthy and can ride bikes when we want.

I had a Klr and liked it very much. And I agree completely with your opinion. I rode mine to St Louis to get my GS. It can do the long trips, but it's not the best there.
It looks like my long haul riding will be on hold for a while. If I find a full time job I will not have vacation time for a while. So a Klr to cruise local tag games and to commute might be my bike. But a wee might be better for me. We will see which when my life settles.

Ditto....

I also want to thank the Asylum for all the great ridding I have enjoyed this year. Met some cool folks at the Catskill backroad ride for a Great Huricane Weekend. I hope all are well after all the Storms we had in our Region.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

I'm going for a ride. I believe Kinzua Bridge will be my destination for the day.

That is all.
