This is tough call, it's all about you the rider and what you are prepared to deal with. (is money a governing factor)
The KLR is an all around excellent, durable and dependable bike that can perform in all conditions...... but not great in any one specific area.
Interstate riding is for larger heavier bikes, for example, the BMW and or the Suzuki Strom.
I would suggest, stick to the back roads and secondary hiways, slow down and enjoy life.
Matter of fact is was out for a ride yesterday and after a half hour of being pushed around by the wind at 118KM per hour, it took off on a side road a took it easy at 100KM (60 mph).
