Talking newbee

Hi, just joined this gig! I ride a very smooth and fast 2011 Suzuki gsx1250 bandit. It's fun to ride but alittle over kill for riding on the streets in the greater bay area sunnyside california. Was thinkin bout going dual sport again. have had the honda xr650l, suzuki drz400s, 250,s. was brain stormin on gettin da 2014 2015 kawasaki klr650. Can I get some feedback please on this particular bike. Is heavier then most dual sports, but then again im 52 yrs old! No more jumps or big bumps! This bike looks more like a street trail bike. the rest of the dual sports look like dirt bikes and kinda suck on da freeway. No what i mean vern! Anyway, I hear its a good wheelie bike and i enjoy doin them! Please give me some sound feedback on the bike....sincerely, bcmann

It's not a good wheelie bike at all. It and the DR650 are excellent road and gravel bikes that can eat up the miles.
