Later on, I went completely the other direction and bought an RMZ 250 to trail ride on with my wife and friends. The magic combination of street and trail riding on one bike really tugged at me for a long time, though, so I gave in and bought the KLX. I can honestly say this is the best kind of riding I have ever done. I'm glad to read about others that have basically the exact same thoughts.
I have been thinking about adding a much smaller light weight dual sport bike to the stable. How do you like that KLX on the trails? Does it do well on the street too?
