Been a while since my last post. Been busy riding, etc. Anyway, am currently dreaming about adding one of the three bikes listed to my garage as a commuter/forest service road exploration unit. No big hurry on my part, just looking for experience from those of you that actually ride these motorcycles. For me, I've not ridden any of them. My very first motorcycle was an '83 XL600R. (Long ago and far away...) Here's what I think I've learned from surfing the web:
*KLR650: Great bang for the buck. Perhaps a bit underpowered in stock trim?
*F650GS: Pricey, decent HP&Torque for a one-lunger, reasonable seat height. Lower ground clearance than the other two.
*DL650: Great bang for the buck. More power & torque due to being a twin? Actually sat on one of these and like the feel in the showroom.
Any experience shared would be greatly appereciated.
