Hey guys, new to the forum, but been lurking a while. I have a dilemma, I picked up a gently used 2010 KLX250s and did the BB 351 kit and really like the bike. It is my first bike and I have it set up as a light weight ADV bike. I do everything from Colorado singletrack to camping trips with it. I recently picked up a super cheap, gently used, DRZ400E 2001 model and have been adventurizing it on the cheap. I have to get rid of one bike and keep one to do it all. My issue is this: The DRZ has great power, better than the KLX 351, and is a little lighter in E form. The KLX is much better geared and just chugs along in 1st gear on tight trails which the DRZ won't do as well when geared to do 55mph at cruise. Which bike do you guys think would be more reliable long term? I want to do the Colorado BDR next year and put about 4K miles on the bike a year. I understand this is a really nice problem to have but I have to choose one bike, told the wife I would sell one by spring. Thanks guys
