Which bike should I take??

BTW, a buddy has an 800GS that he thinks I should buy and sell the other two.

Thoughts appreciated.
I'm planning on taking a 650, not sure what yet. KTM 690, Husky 650 Terra, BMW or a KLR. From the sounds of things it's mostly dirt this year and will favour a thumper. Although the 800 would be good too. I wouldn't want to be flogging a big 1100-1200 on muddy roads.
