The KTM 500 is a great dual sport bike if you're riding involves 90% dirt and 10% street. The 690 is a good bike for street riding and a good bike for dirt riding (a little heavy). The 690 weakest area is the suspension. The first thing I would do is send the suspension to SuperPlush and have the forks and shock revalved and resprung for your weight and riding style. IMO the 690 sounds like it will meet most of your riding needs.
