R1 to KLR: Possible new guy here!
As the title says, I currently have an R1 but an considering getting a KLR. I can't do two bikes at once, and to be honest with you, I think I'm getting tired of the R1. Don't get me wrong, I love the absolute performance the bike is capable of, but the R1 is best ridden at a pretty brisk pace, not really at one that lets you relax and take in the scenery. It's also a horrible commuter in a mix of traffic & highway.
While I don't have as much free time on the weekends for extended rides anymore, I do still like to be able to commute if I can on my bike. And there have been times when I've wanted to run to the hardware store or down to Walgreens and thought it'd be nice to take the bike, but it's almost like it's not worth the trouble on the R1.
So, I started looking at supermotos and dual sports. I like the KLR and the DRZ400SM. I know each has their pros and cons.
I'm looking forward to learning more about the KLR. Hopefully I'll be able to make a decision soon.
