Good to see you too. Unfortunately just found this site... I love it. I am considering buying a DS to park next to our beloved Hypers. Just can't seem to make up my mind. KTM 690 seems to have too many FI problems. F800GS too heavy. XR650L too unexciting. Same for KLR and DR. WR250R too weak, I know- I have the F. WR450 no sixth gear. XR650R too old.
KTM 500 EXC??? Is it roadworthy enough to do some I70/I25? Is it reliable enough?
