Love those bikes but it won;t be taking you on any back roads.

Do you know the owner. Might have some hard miles on it.

Are you looking to get out of the KLR??

Tough call. Not really comparing apples to apples. It's what you want that will make the decision. Best scerario is to have them both!!

+1 to what klr4ever says. One thought, 16k on a street bike that has been pushed is about when most riders get rid of them because they are going to have to start working on them a lot. tolerances aren't as forgiving as our klr's are. Just something to consider. Have fun with whatever you choose.
