Hi I am planning to sell the klr because I haven't really been using it and every time I do use it something breaks (last 3 rides = seized speedo drive destroys front hub, cush drive bearing spins in cush drive damaging bearing surface,oil filter cover insists on leaking all over my boot,dribbling counter-shaft seal, rear rack mounts strip out - again (yesterday)) Also I'm kind of 'over' adventure riding as I get my off road thrills on the trail and trials bikes and I have never felt confident on gravel BUT I really really love playing silly buggers on sealed twisty back roads so replacement (used) bike needs to meet the following criteria: price 7-10k (including any extras) pref 2007 or newer upright comfortable seating along with reasonable wind protection ability to handle the very occasional gravel road at modest pace. happy on bumpy back roads good brakes (pref dual front disks) at least 60hp/650 twin upwards be able to fit solid panniers for overnighters cant see me ever needing to pillion all minor/medium maintenance doable at home FUN in the twisties.. Without having ridden anything I can think of the following... Kwaka Versys or maybe er6n/f TDM900 Maybe a Bonneville? Vstroms are too ugly Beemers (1100-1150) in that price range are getting pretty long in the tooth and are probably a bit big for what I want. The versys is probably the leading contender but I haven't ridden one yet Anyone got any polite suggestions?
