The older I get, the more I appreciate simplicity. However, I really appreciate quality suspension so it seems that either bike will need suspension work to satisfy me. Thanks in advance.
I'm glad you are enjoying the thread.
What are you planning on doing with either bike, or what kind of riding and whats most important to you ?
You really can't go wrong with the wee strom either, unless the klr really speaks to you.
More than likely the wee will do more better of what you want, but it will cost more and be a little heavier.
The wee has always appealed to me.
