    I get the 690 in theory. It's a XRL DR650. I just think the execution kind of sucks. The forks on everyone I've been are garbage and the power delivery was weird.

    If was getting a dual sport though, for anything travel/adv/etc., it would be the 500 as well.

    :stupid

    The 690 KTM's make zero sense to me. Only ever rode one on the road, but I do not need to ever ride it in the dirt. Moar pointless than tits without nips.

    Seemed like a parts bin bike to me. But it sure has a following.

    Traveling around the US and kanoodia it would be good. Morer motor than the 500 and little more weight for interstate and highway riding. I mean I taint buying one but I get it.

    T7 way moar better. They nailed it with that motor. The 690 is a huge miss IMO.

    Went for a hike that is literally almost in my back yard this morning. Not sure why I don't come up here more.

    The trailhead is literally 2 miles from my house. Sadly nothing in the picture can be ridden legally. :(

    Pretty much. You can have fun if you actually ride a fun bike though.

    I was all set to ride a T7. It was a dealer’s personal bike. But he sold it. :photog

    I view the A/T much like I do the 690.
