I have a 2003 fatboy and it is a wonderful and beautiful bike, BUT it is boring. I used to race motocross and would like to pop a wheelie again before I die. I like the KLR and XR for their simplicity, history, price and aftermarket parts. I also like the KTM,WR, Honda, Husky and the newer dual sport bikes. I am 250 pounds (am trying to slim down-power lift) my fear is that if I buy a KLR or XR that I will need to spend enough on "fixing" them up (shocks, forks, any motor mods and etc) that I should just buy say a KTM 690R or etc, but then I hear that the KTM's have some dependability issues and cost a lot to fix. My second fear is this, if I get rid of the Harley, really a piece of art, and do not like the dual sport I get will never have the opportunity to ever get a Harley again or anything else for that matter. Long story I intend to ride 65% on road and the other on dirt/gravel. I really life the KTM 690R, I also was initially hooked on the BMW 800GS, but the prince seems a but much. I mean with the KTM there is a shop w/in 30 miles, with the BMW 175 miles and with everything else minus the Husky 10 miles. I also fear that as soon as I got a KLR or XR those companies would finally update the line and then I would be "sorry" stuck with an antiquated bike. I can also get bogged down in the details and choices of bikes and options so any assistance would be great. I was leaning toward the XR recently over the KLR, because the KLR appears to be a work horse, but a little dogged. I also like the cost, modern features of the 250's, but again do not want to get stuck with a slower bike. I do not see why they do not build a bike that is in the 450 to 650 range. I even like the KTM 500 or 530 whatever it is. Thanks for reading this rambling, any assistance would be helpful.
