Ooooops, cabelo, you're asking the wrong guy! I'm a real KLR lover and couldn't imagine anything else. Well, maybe a KLE500. Or a Transalp. Or maybe a Tenere. Or even one of those BMW things. Naw, not that.
Aw hell, the KTM is nice, too.
The biggest thing I'd worry about, and why I like the KLR so much, is reliability and ease of repair in the back country.There's just something about a bike that is so state of the art for 1980 - you can just about fix it with some tin foil and bubblegum, no matter what broke.
