Wow this thing is still going on huh? So to sum up I'm just gonna dump money into the KLR. When the wife gets a bike again, ill see what she decides on and follow suit. If she gets a dual sport then i'm there already, if it ends up being long distance then ill jump on that band wagon. But for now the KLR has done me good.

Yaaa KLR is such a versatile machine.  :thumb:  Had a Concours... and many bikes before that. The KLR since 2010 and a KTM 530 this spring. Just sold the KTM and will be keeping the KLR.  haphap

With the amount of gold wings available with relatively low miles ( less than 100k on the clock) you can't really beat them. Very reliable, very comfortable on long hauls even in heavy wind. Fuel mileage isn't too bad either considering the weight you're hauling around. I picked up my '86 for $1300 w/ 70k on it. From '86 to the mid '90s one can be had for less than $4k. Had to beat the bench mark touring bike. Everyone else tries to copy it.
