How would you compare the top end of the 640 to the KLR on the open road?
I too would like to know how it cruises the freeway. I liked the KLR until I took it off-road (it would have to have updated suspension before I could own one, like USD forks and a new shock, both with more travel), now I am deciding between a 640 ADV and a BMW Dakar. I keep coming back to the Dakar because of the gas mileage it gets and how well it will cruise the freeway but I keep wanting the KTM because you can actually ride it off road with some normal speed because of the better suspension. Also, with the weight of the Dakar, it is almost tempting to step up to a KTM 950, if I could afford one.
