I think by buying a KLR you will achieve what you are looking for. A friend has an XR650. On gravel I can't keep up with him. Being a lighter bike helps. You'll be giving that up. Whenever I ride with him it seems like we are always looking for fuel though. Seems to have half the capacity of the KLR.
