Depends on where you want to take the KLR. I won't take my 300x to the same places I use to take the my old KLR. But then I won't take a KLR there anymore ether. The KLR is more Dirt oriented that the 300X out of the box. But with the proper outfitting I am sure it will do fine in most cases. For my usage and age it will do just fine.How does the little Versys function as a KLR replacement?
