I had a DL650 which I sold due to medical reasons and then was torn about getting another DL650 or a new KLR. The KLR has a frame made of pressed oatmeal, uses inferior hardware, vibrates, has a ton of inherent problems, rides on tubed tires, and just lacks the smoothness needed for serious touring (IMHO). I bought a Dakar instead, owned it for a month and then bought another DL650. YMMV.
