I am the proud owner of a KLR 650 2012 model manufactured in 2011.
During our last trip to Sierra de la Ventana in the south east of Buenos Aires province we had winds of 40 to 70 km/h.
Our group was one BMWR1200, one Yamaha Fazer 1000, one Ninja 650 and my KLR.
During this time I suffered with the lateral wind and I saw that my partners could manage this situation much easier than I did.
After many hours analyzing what had happened we agreed that the total height of my bike was the principal problem.
As I don't want to loose my Off/On road pleasure I decide to buy a Versys, which I think it is a good solution and a better on road bike than my KLR.
Opinions are welcomed, as I am in the process of negotiating with the Kawa dealer for a 2017 Versys.
