Alright, this is for all of you motorcycle champs with experience in the off-roading/multipurpose riding arena.

I have to go to some work down south here in a few months and am bringing my 600RR with me.

However, I am also going to get a "multi-purpose" means of transportation in order to ride around down there and get some good time in with the contractors on the trails and in training situations.

I'm going to be leaning towards the Kawasaki KLR650 for quite a few reasons. Obviously it's the one the military uses so all of my "attachments" and "toys" they have are easily transferable, and should any maintenance be needed to be done on it, the E-2 at the nearest motorpool can show me what's up. Plus, while training, it'll be easy for me to slip her in (after the paint job) and get her filled up on post.

My question is, does anyone have any recommendations for any other choices and why they think it would be best.

Thanks -

Any advice and/or opinions are welcome.

Beware of the doohickey. http://www.devonjarvisphoto.com/post...tallation.html

That's one reason I got a DR rather than the KLR. The DR is lighter too, better off-road.
