Its funny because I just ordered the 2016 Dl650 Adventure. Becasue I am in Mexico I think that it is the most cost effective bike out there. I really want a GS1200 but the cost here is 25K and I can't afford that. I have had KLR's, and the problem is at about 85 the rear wheel starts to shimmy. I know that they are lighter bikes out there but for the overall price and everything else, this is the best bike for me. I don't plan on doing a lot of serious riding, becasue I had three cows cross in front of me and I swerved to avoid them. Unfortunately, I didn't get out unscather and now have 27 rods and pins in my ankle. Now I am more of a comfort rider than a fast rider.
As they say I now want to stop and smell the roses. I am now doing more things because that is what makes me happy. I am ready for a Central America Trip.
