I've got an XR650L & a 1200GS. I put a set of Avon Venoms on the 650L & around town it is more fun than the Beemer, but out on the open road the BMW wins hands down. More weight, more horse power, more everything. Off road the 650L is a lot easier to handle & a lot less expensive to throw on the ground. The Honda will get you in to Dual Sporting at a reasonable price & you will have a ball of fun with it. Has anybody noticed that riding a 650L sorta puts you in a no mans land when it comes to the old M/C to M/C wave. Of course HD riders don't wave, but Cruiser riders, Sport Bike riders, & Wingers all look the other way when they see a 650L. I guess with the # plates you just look like kid on a dirt bike.
