Its all good Savage, you have a good point. I was about ready to go with the 705 but did not. Truth be told I think I need an extra bike. Last evening I was playing in the mud in a creek by the house, not the place for that 705. The K270 did pretty well however the KLR is a pig. WR250R might be a nice toy to add?Please don't think I'm raining on your parade, but I wish you would of tried the Shinko 244's. They are so much better on asphalt than the 270's. But since you're doing 70 miles of highway riding I would of went with 705's.
Not hating on you, just offering some advice for next go around.
