Greetings Beastie Boys: Ok, there is snow on the ground here in West Virginia so I'm daydreaming about buying my first bike in 20 years. Top contenders (this will change every five minutes) are the Tiger 800XC and Tenere. The question is, should I (or anyone) buy a new KLR to get back into the scene and learn Motorcycle Maintenance 101 - or jump right into the beastie dream bike? One detail I should supply is that I only want one motorcycle in the garage. I wonder what you seasoned pros would do in my position. I'm 47 by the way, so jumping over a building or running from the cops really isn't on my agenda. Doing two up riding looks to be very limited as the wife is showing, ummm, shall we say....very little interest.
