Riding Experience: Answer #2, and far more honest...limited
What kind of riding do I want to do? Tough question, although it should be an easy answer. I'm really missing my RZ350, and imagine it to be the right bike for me again. But that was for zipping around curvy (paved) roads. I love the dirt, although my skills are rank amateur.
I have had too many bikes that were too big/heavy for me to feel comfortable with. I'm tall, so seat height isn't generally a problem. I really don't want to (repeatedly) attempt kick start another DR650, but that was a long time ago. I want something that will be user friendly, not too heavy, cute to look at, and fun to ride. And it would also be nice if it could be new and not ridiculously expensive, as I am uncertain as to how much of an enthusiast I will become. I'm really fond of the old British bikes, but know enough to realize it would be a poor/narrow/esoteric choice. The KLR's seem interesting, but I don't know enough to make an educated choice.
Gee, looking at what I've written I really do sound like Barbie. It would be nice to find everything in one bike, but that's not realistic.
In real life my expectations are to find something fun, I'll know it when I find it...I hope.
