Hey herod...Talk to me about your DR. I'm looking to buy a pre 08 KLR next month but lately I've started having second thoughts because of all the wrenching that seems to be required. I'm looking for a daily commuter (60 mile round trip) and weekend warrior and I have plans to do the TAT and the Continental Divide in the next few years. Oh, and I'm cheap, so the KLR seemed like a good all rounder. But lately I've been thinking that the DR can do all that and is probably better built with higher grade materials and more reliable. You obviously like yours enough to buy another one. Do you have any wisdom to impart? Pros and cons compared to the KLR?
