there are some great bikes in that line up. If It were me travelling to a foreign country for a bike holiday my first priority would be reliability, service agents and parts availability. So with that in mind the KLR would be on my short list. Having said that I love the XTZ and that XR is a sweet looking bike and pretty well set up. The beamer is probly a sensible choice so if it were me I'd leave it for someone sensible to buy it ...it maybe just me but those GS's just don't light my fire at all.
