Purchased a 2011 white 650 with the optional top and side cases. So far I am very pleased. I was on an XR650L for more offroad stuff and a KLR650 for more street stuff. With the little time off I have I decided to just get 1 bike that will do what I want. Primarily exploring dirt roads which seem to be seperated by plenty of street and highway. So far I replaced the side case with some Seahorse boxes, changed the bars, factory center stand, gps, repadded the seat, added Motech crash bars and skid, removed graphics, and installed some Kenda big blocks. So far no regrets. I ride most Sundays sometimes for an hour, sometimes till dark. Would love to ride with others in the area, maybe get a meet and greet together. Thanks for letting me tag along with ya'll on the site!
