I see a lot of KLRs and DR650s for sale for dirt cheap. So I'm considering those.
go for the WR. fuel injected with awesome suspension. that bike handles excellent. im not in favor of the DR650 because of its very very tall gearing and 17 inch rear wheel making it hard to find good dual sport or offroad tires. and not the KLR because its about 400 pounds wet. WR is super light, and flick able. its also pretty fast. on par with a DRZ400 almost.
