Do you guys think this would be a good idea? My boyfriend and I each have KLR's; mine is the 250, his is the 650. We got those bikes to learn how to ride on, to get our street licenses, and to bomb around the trails on. Now that its been a couple years, we would like more competent off-roaders. I don't mean that we need GREAT dirtbikes, but we still want something a little better. I plan to trade for a KLX250s. It sounds perfect for me. He, on the other hand, has a really wierd taste in bikes. He likes to ride bikes that aren't as competent as others because its more of a challenge. Problem is, he keeps breaking the KLR650 because he's riding beyond its capabilities. My question is, how much better offroad is the XR? How does it do on the street compared to the KLR? I know it won't be nearly as comfortable, but is it acceptable? We do about 50/50 on/off riding, so it is important that it can take the streets okay. Does it break often like the KLR or does it actually hold up? I know the engine is reliable, and that engine and suspension mods exist, so power and suspension are non-issue. Please be aware that he is not looking for the best off-roader ever made, just a step up from the Kawi. What do you all think. Thanks!
