Great. We need to go riding again. I need to try riding your Ktm and see what all the hype is. Also I got a buddy who is transitioning from 4 wheelers to dual sport so I'm looking for another bike. If any body knows of any let me know.

Haha,
No hype at all.
The DR is a Ford truck, the 525 is a Ferrari. That is all.Try it, you will like it.

I like my Ford truck, but I also like my Yamaha. I would probably crash a Ferrari if I had one. Better just stick with my Ford and Yamaha.

So what is a KLR650?

I think a Mighty Max pickup fits the bill. Relable, cheap, runs forever, total POS.
