I have an old cheap KLR and I say its indispensable for going offroad, and does that job much better than either Strom. Mine is set up for trail riding, more so than my Vee. I got it for a disturbingly cheap price and it just keeps on ticking with little engine work and little or no mainainence. It may be the ultimate around town bike, superior to either Strom
But I need to tour sometimes, and my Vee is hard to beat for sport touring--I have it set up mostly for that, and on pavement it is vastly superior to the KLR. So I always say if you can, consider the purchase of two used bikes, a Vee and a KLR, and you will be set for nearly all motorcycling needs.
So then I bought a '77 Goldwing, and I am now scratching the 'old bike' itch. What is to become of me?
