How does one "inadvertently" buy a bike? I might get "inadvertently" divorced for that... :-)

Who knows. Maybe there will only be one bike company handling them all. Ha Ha

It's hard to beat a DL1000 in that price range.

It's the only bike I ever bought two of, and while my S10 is worlds better, I can honestly say that the DL1000 is a better bang for your buck.

Thumb Two blue bikes......

I tried the one bike route as well. The Triumph was a bit much off-road, but a cheap 2008 KLR650 was just the ticket for the dirt.....it also makes a great commuter in the slop. Now the Triumph is perfect for long trips and weekend play. Stays cleaner this way too

I agree on a 650 dual-sport.

It's light enough to work well off-road, yet a big enough motor to handle hiway speeds, camping-gear weight and power in the mountains of Colorado.

After that i'd say 800XC all the way.

There are 650 ds older than dinosaurs, there are another which ain't reliable exotic and overpriced at the same time, and there is a new Husky, which is naked and going to be discontinued before the 2d year of production.

Tough choice.

It's a tough bike. I'm constantly amazed at what it can do. Skid plate is one of the weak links. Does not like going over logs and large rocks.
