Just sold my 08 KLR650 and I am pretty sure the Versys is going to be it's replacement. I had a couple of questions before I jump into it though, something I wish I did before I bought the KLR. Does any of your bikes burn oil? The new KLR's are guzzling it. What is your rpm at 80mph and 90mph? The KLR was about to explode at 80mph. I have been hanging around this forum checking things out and I am suprised at how little you are all complaining about the bike. Over at the KLR site it is just complaint after complaint about things going wrong with the bike. This to me is a good sign you are all pretty satisfied with your bikes. I just want to wait a couple of months and get a black or green 09.
