I believe the old style KLR650 or a DRZ400S make better 1st bikes, but as long as you know what you are getting into it is your decision.
BTW. Just about any bike made can handle 95% street 5% gravel when in capable hands.
nah i want a first bike that will last a while i sat on the klr and i hated the feeling of it. also my dad has a beasty bmw and even 5% offroad is hard
