Let me know how you like the KLR for two up riding. I am trying to decide on a KLR650, DR650 or a F650GS thumper.

Best of luck, Mike
Mike, thank you for the kind offer of help. I will definitely contact you if I run into trouble.

I'll try to give honest evaluations of the bike as we make the trip. Remember that this is an all pavement ride. I'm guessing since your 3 bike options are KLR, DR or GS that you plan to do some offroad riding as well. I have a V-Strom DL1000 as well and for highway and dirt roads in decent condition I promise you it's far better for 2 up travel. But it is pretty worthless once you get off compacted surfaces.

Mrs. Liberia is a great photographer so we should get some nice pictures along the way that we can share.
