    Hi everyone!

    I'm a recent Winnipeg resident eager to get my motorcycle driver's licence as well as a bike when the weather allows me to and I've been following the conversations for a while to get to know some nice ride routes around.
    I used to have a Yamaha 660Z Tenere back in my hometown and I loved it, and now I'm looking for an affordable ADV (new or used) slightly willing to go for a KLR 650.
    What do you guys suggest me?

    Thanks in advance! :-)

    Having never ridden the 660, I can't comment on similiarities to the KLR.
    As for a comfortable, affordable, reliable dualsport, the KLR would be the obvious suggestion.
    And, there are plenty around....

    Thanks Mark96!
    I believe 660s and KLRs are very similar bikes and shares all you've mentioned (comfortable, affordable, reliable dualsport) that's why I set the KLR as a goal.
    Do you think kijiji is a good place to look for used KLRs?

    Not as 'Adventurous' as most of the rides contemplated here but, I had fun doing the Parks and the Towns previously.
    You will do gravel doing the Parks.

    I plan to do the Monuments this summer.
    Nice to spend my recreational money in the local economy.
