If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

Klr250?

KLR or KLX? I believe that KLRs are 650s. 250s are KLXs.

I had a KLR650 and liked it better off road than my WeeStrom. I also had a KLX250 and liked it better than a TTR250 Yamaha I had. It had better suspension and was a good light weight off roader.

Reading through this thread makes this ride sound like a lot of fun. It also happens in a good time of the year as the motorcycle shop starts slowing down by then.
