I was wondering if this is too high for this bike, or what the life expectancy of an XT600 is? Or would I be better off with a KLR here in America? I'm considering some long distance riding (15,000 miles) and I need a bike that can do it.
Any help on the XT is much appreciated.
depends on the price and overall condition
is it well maintained or a beater?
and service log?
the KLR is better supported as to parts and service, since the XT600E hasn't been imported here since 1995, but I can get anything I need for it (except racks etc are tough since it wasn't that popular and aftermarket is almost nonexistent in the US.)
