If you dont take care of a DR, and especially a KLR, they will leave you walking home as well. You need to look after any bike. The routine work on the KTM Adventure is just more of a PITA because of all the shit you have to take off to get to it. The SE is quite a bit easier because of that IMO.

As far a toughness, the 990 is one tough bike. I've thrashed mine pretty hard and even zip tied it together and rode it 500 miles home after I got hit by a truck in Baja. Its not fragile, thats for sure.
