The 93 feels like a street bike with a lot of ground clearance and an upright seating position. If I were doing more off than on I would jump on the 07. Probably wouldn't want to do the Natchez Trace on it though, at least not the way it sits. Just my .02 of course, we still haven't got the bikes dirty yet

Roger that.

I will most likely go with the KLR. I like the 6 gal tank and better wind protection. Plus, most of the mods that need to be done to bring it up to snuff are realitivly easy and cheap.

Still, I'd be interested in your comparison after you get a closer look.
