I can only afford/justify one bike currently (too many kids), so the ugly Gen 1 KLR with some suspension mods is it right now. It never disappoints except when I ride it someplace really nasty and have to turn back (I REALLY miss my XR440) or when I have to pound 300+ miles of interstate. For everything in between it does just fine. I'm thinking in a perfect world two more bikes are needed. A KTM or GasGas 200-300cc 2t for the nasty single track, and real road bike (I'm thinking FJR or C14) for long range highway work. But currently the old KLR is what I get, so I'll ride it smiling. If you can only have one bike, the humble KLR is not too bad.
