Actually I did buy a KLR
Actually I did buy a 2006 KLR to replace my original Honda 900, but I wasn't satisfied with it on the road and certainly would not want to ride it as my only dirt bike (remember I was replacing a MXer). I think the reason I was not happy with it was I was coming from a fully dressed multi-cylinder touring bike. Understand I am not knocking the KLR, it just didn't suit me. The BMW will handle my touring requirements with even more comfort than my old 900 and it will go down dirt/gravels that I would never attempt on the 900.
