Update: No longer confused! Thanks guys for the replies and advice!! ____________________________________________________________________ Original post: Hi guys, my kids are getting a little older and I'm starting to feel that I might be able to get a motorcycle again, however, there are a lot of options out there and that's part of the confusion. Can I have your help? Some details: - haven't ridden in 10 years - 6'2" ~ 185lbs - thinking dual sport, lighter weight - inexpensive (kids tuition comes first so I'm left with little for myself!) - low maintenance/high reliability - I like the look of aluminum panniers! - don't like riding a motorcycle on the freeway and would avoid it when ever possible. The motorcycles I have looked at but no test rides, - WR250R - DRZ400 - KLR650 And while at the shop last weekend I sat on a Versys 650 and v-strom and thought wow, those feel really comfortable! - Versys 650 - V-strom 650 Before last weekend I was trying to narrow it down to one of the three and was tied between the WR250R and DRZ400, but now I'm really confused after sitting on those two other bikes. What do you guys think, can you offer some advice? Thanks!!
