A friend of mine is about to buy a new touring/trail/commuter bike and is torn between the KLE 500 and the F650GS.
Now before you all cry "BMW!", the reason between the quandry is that you can currently buy a new (MY2006 / 2007 Reg) KLE for £2700. So you end up with a new bike with a warranty, or a 3/4 year old BMW with 10k miles on it. Now, I appreciate that the BMW *should* be a better bike, but is there really that much in it?
My friend plans to use it for commuting into London every day, touring to Europe twice a year or so (possibly 2 up) and maybe 10% of it's life will be spent off-road.
