I think the general consensus will be that the KLR isn't great at anything but good for everything. As an all round bike for the use you describe it fits the bill perfectly. A lot depends on your budget too.
As far as lasting a long time. It's all how how you look after it. There are many old models still on the road, some with 100,000 miles.
