Think you will be disappointed with the KLR. Just got my 2022 so it's not completely broken in yet with 500 miles. She will cruise along great at 60-62 mph. Once you start getting closer to 65 mph it starts to vibrate and you can tell it's climbing out of the sweet spot. Ran it up to 70mph a couple times and wouldn't plan on running that fast for extended periods. Sure it will get there quick and run faster but cruising comfortably all day, NO.

Of course you could change gearing or tire size and get there easily. Then you will be down on power a little. Give and take.

I to had my heart set on a T7 and a Africa Twin, but the price just killed it. Had the chance to buy a few but with the dealers playing pricing games I passed. Being a cheap bastard spending much more then 5k on a bike isn't in the cards. However that brand new KLR for $6500 with military discount just couldn't be passed up.
