Unstable Rider was born on a KLR, and he's also a street fighter builder and expert graphic web artist.
I still have a 1997 BMW F650 ST, and I think it is the best BMW has made, having owned their R's and a big K bike: but I don't know if I'll go back to it any time soon (it's been sitting a while.)
The Vs. 650 is the ONLY upright sitting supermoto tourer with a midrange cam in it. That's a mouth-full of engineering, options, and fun. And it's probably cheaper than a KLR too.
Just drive safe, and you'll be happy!
