im going with the spoked wheels next year, with suspension upgrades. I do 4-500kms on dirt and owned a klr, but I do most of my riding on the blacktop. the versys won out. The KLR is a fine bike for slow speed roads, but not ideal for eating up milage on the road. the versys is great at 600-1000km days from the floor, but needs a little help on dirt. ordering this wheel setup and suspension, I can go back and forth then. street tires on stockers, dirt tires on the laced wheels, and best of both worlds.
