The KLR 650 is No.3 on my list of favorite bikes ever owned, currently on bike No. 20. Yes it's out dated technology & lacks in everything but, for the price (especially used) it can't be beat as a do everything bike. The KLR never fails to put a smile on my face. A 690 enduro, Hyabusa or a WR 450 would all put a bigger smile on my face but, those bikes are all more money. The Busa can't single track & the WR can't do highway miles. If I could ONLY have 1 bike it would be the KLR. The funny thing about owning a KLR though, is it makes you fantasize about other bikes alot. However the last time I didn't have a bike, the KLR was the bike I fantasized about the most. P.S. The bikes I currently fantasize about are the 990 supermoto R, The 900 Nuda & the 1000 Versys. None of which are available in the U.S. for 2012.
