Thanks, I think a KLR would be the best right now because it has enought power and its somewhat "sporty" , it would be more comfortable on longer rides (not super long maybe 4 hours) and it would be fun to just be able to go explore FS roads if i get bored on a long ride lolWelcome new guy! Consider what you type of riding you want to do before making a purchase. For example, do you intend to take long tours? If so you will want something that is all-day comfortable. On the other extreme, if you want something to carve the canyons then a 900lb touring bike probably wont work for you. There are lots of good articles on the subject to help you out.
Ok thanks! I'm from Eastern Washington. no I havent yet. I would like to though. (i dont know what the laws are there) but...If you pass (in tennessee lol) you dont have to take the DMV skills test do you?Welcome from East Tennessee!:biggrin:
So, where are ya from? Have you taken the BRC yet? ( its Worth the effort!) I would suggest what many do on the forum, go to various dealers and try sitting on their bikes, by that I mean sit on them, see how the controls feel, how does the size,weight feel etc. Just my .02
