I have a 525EXC to compliment the 990R.

Perfect for when the trails get really knarly.

Half the weight of the 990. With SM setup, an absolute HOOLIGAN! (Maybe you shouldn't)

Did you read the latest Cycle World article that summed up the KLR trumps the 990?

As a previous KLR owner I thought you must be joking, but I did a search and found the article. I'll concede that the KLR is easier to repair in the field, but even a slow plodding zombie could outrun it. And that's why magazine articles don't mean shit!

Agreed. I'm still scratching my head about the article.


Glad you found my sarcasm.

I sold the 690 because i can almost do the same riding with the 990.

So inmates whats your opinion on bikes.
So, What would GOD ride?

A BMW /2 based ISDT bike?
Suzuki RE5 Rotary?
Honda CT90?

You need at least five bikes to cover the spectrum of riding experiences.
1. trials bike 140 lbs, less is more, Gasgas 280 pro
2. light dualsport or trail bike, KTM 500 exc, 300xcw
3. The best adventure bike ever created, slightly tamed from a Dakar race bike, covered.
4. New old vintage bike that you can ride, Guzzi of any kind or year, BMW /5.
5. Big sport touring bike, but a light one, Triumph Sprint ST, 990 SMT,

So, get to work.
