I am curious how the KLR did on the UTBDR? I currently have a KTM 530 but am thinking of getting rid of it and getting into something I can do longer extended rides on. I am looking at both the KLR and the Wee Strom. I think the KLR would have been better for this route than the Wee though. So how do you think the KLR did on this trip? Thanks. Enjoyed your RR..

The KLR is my friend's bike. He rode it on this ride as well as on the WABDR in 2011. He also rides it a fair bit on our local dirt rides and uses it as his daily commuter. Overall I think the KLR is a great basic bike. It's a bit of a jack of all trades. IMO it is better in the dirt than a Wee but less comfortable on the pavement. They are both good bikes but for more off pavement I would lean towards the KLR. These are just my observations from riding friends' bikes (both KLR and Wee). Neither will do as well in the dirt as a smaller dual sport (like the WR) but they are both better on the pavement. Just my 2 cents. YMMV.

Personally I think if your used to the KTM, both of these bikes are going to be a let down when you try to ride them off road. That said, they will be better for touring with gear.
