New dual sport fan in PA
Hey everyone. My name is Rob, from central PA. Ive been looking for a new fun vehicle here and was looking into Miata's originally. Since then I went to my dads and test drove my step sisters little crappy Honda RM100. I was too big for it and it sucked for power but I LOVED riding it around.
Long story short: No more Miata, Im getting a bike for fun times. As a previously avid offroader (had a lifted 93 Geo Tracker that I loved) i wanted a dual sport from the start.
So what should I buy? =)
I was looking into KLR's and Suzuki DR's (I had a Tracker, im a fan of suzuki made things.. haha). The KLR looks cheaper and more easily accessible to me but im still not sure which model to get. I figure around 2-3 grand Ill be playing with. Heres what Im figuring for models:
-KLR250 Super Sherpa (Looks ok for a starter bike, appears it would suite me well. I like the air cooled, electric start features)
-KLR650 (Not sure how the size would work for me. Im 5'8", 240 pounds. Id worry able the height and bulk of it.)
Thanks for the help and opinions!
