I was just thinking that my KLR reminds me of my old jeep. Its rough, uncomfortable, and not very good on the highway. But it can pretty much go anywhere. What do you think the wee's car equivalent would be?
Yes,It's more like a Honda CRV, an economy model that does everything okay, isn't great at anything but bang for the buck, and reliable. Some people take it off road but that's pushing the envelope. Yeah Rav4 and Forester are good too.
I could accept the Forrester or rav4 as an equivalent, but for me the car equivalent is my old Volvo 850. Adequate power, handles better than you'd expect, has a really nice manual tranny, likes twisty roads, can handle the highway at 120/130 Km/h + but gets tiring at more than that, can do dirt roads (not off-road) quite nicely, and not necessarily pretty, thank you. That describes both vehicles. I've taken neither in the really ugly stuff. The leather seats in the car are nicer than the stock seat on the DL650, and there's less buffeting. But the DL is what I hope to be taking to Toronto this weekend.I was just thinking that my KLR reminds me of my old jeep. Its rough, uncomfortable, and not very good on the highway.

ya, I got more than normal WP springs for my 300lb lard ass + another 350lb for 2up & cargo (1.2 in front, can't remember the exact rate in back)All trucks have more suspension than cars, even the 2x4s and small ones.
