Im an experienced street rider (mostly vintage Japanese bikes) but I want to get into some heavier duty off road stuff and some "expedition" riding. First I want to do some stuff up through new England and into Canada and nova scotia...and ultimately take on the trans America trail. What do I want for a bike...at the moment I'm bouncing back and forth between the BMW 650 sertao (more than I'd like to spend), a klr 650 and a Suzuki dr650. I've heard people say that larger duals like the klr are perfectly fine on the eastern portion of the trail but nimbler bikes like the Suzuki or the honda are nicer in the sands and mountains of the west. Once out west ill probably take to the roads to come back east, and have no problem swapping tires along the way...but I'd like to find a good balance in the bike itself. I like the massive gas tank of the klr, the dependency of the BMW and the nimbleness of the Suzuki and Honda. Talk to me!
