He says you will want......I meant more in theory. I plan to be on a KLR and my dad's on a Goldwing and I just want to know if he will be leaving me in the dust every time we ride? He swears I will want something more than a 650 later on but if I can keep up with his Goldwing I don't see why I would ever need it.
Thank you so much, that is exactly what I was looking for!! I am actually leaning towards a Versys now which I understand has quite initial power difference than the KLR. I just don't think I will be off road enough to justify the KLR. Would you happen to have the 0-60 of a Kawasaki Versys 650?2008 Kawasaki KLR650: 0-60 mph 6.3 | Quarter mile 14.8
2005 Honda Gold Wing: 0-60 mph 4.1 | Quarter mile 12.4
He will be able to leave you in the dust if he wants to. But, the KLR is still quicker than most cars and will be fine for riding with a Goldwing as long as the Goldwing pilot is considerate.
I see, sorry I should've tried Google first. That is excellent news, thank you for the help!You can find the 0-60 times for any bike by searching Google. For example the first webpage found when I typed in "versys 650 0-60" is this one. That bike will keep up with a Goldwing properly. http://www.cycleworld.com/2012/10/17/kawasaki-versys-middleweight-motorcycles/
