My 08 with basic mods will get up around 100 mph on the freeway. It comfortably does 85ish. I also agree with Wanderer, though, if you're going to be seriously touring at freeway speeds, you might want a bigger, less buzzy bike.
Given, the two choices you listed, I would pass on the KLR. You check out the VStrom?
