I know that this is a little O/T for this board, but I've alway found the answers here informative and refreshingly B.S. free. I am in the market for a big dual-sport bike, something to explore the back-roads with around home. I will be carrying a passenger fairly often, and will be mostly running gravel roads with some highway use at elevated (65 mph +) speeds. I also will with out a doubt take the bike off-road mostly on two-track jeep-type trails. Some of the bikes that come to mind as likely candidates are the KLR650, DR650, XR650L, and BMW F650GS Dakar. I would welcome anyone's input before I lay down the cash, and I am completely open to any suggestions on these or any other bike. Peace Eh - P.Z.
