Hi all. I've been looking at getting another bike. Havn't had one in awhile. I've been doing some searching and was looking at getting a good used one for now but ran across a 2008 KLR650 at the dealership for 4300.00. I was just wondering what peoples likes and dislikes where on this bike.

Cons: Heavy/top-heavy, wide, bulky, moderate power, limited top-end, non-adjustable suspension, and ugly (I think.). There are certainly others. It generally has a very budget feel to it.

Pros: Versatile, comfy, great fuel range/good fuel economy, cheap, good wind protection, on/off-road, reliable, and simple. There are certainly others. It's a great value. Whether it's what you will be happy w/, or not...

If you're not going to do much/rougher off-roading, look really hard at the Versys. Great bike, and much better on the road. It'd be about as good, or better in some cases, on hardpack/gravel/"adventure-touring."

Good luck.
