Like the video, wondered what you think about a big guy on the klr. Been interested in getting into dual sport motorcycles, but not sure how the klr will handle a 300lb guy. I know it’ll get th job done, but wonder if the power to weight ratio will be underwhelming once i get some experience on the bike.

Best beginner dual sport bike WR250r. good longevity, good service intervals, reasonably light, decent suspension. I love my 14 Husaberg FE501, but I’ve been riding for almost 40 years. If I was new I don’t think you can really beat the WR250r. For new riders stay away from auto clutches. You really need to learn clutch control before thinking about an auto clutch.

I started on a CRF230M; just one letter away from a dual sport! It was a great way to get into riding and get more comfortable before I got my 390 Duke.

Great video w/spot on advice ! ive been a dual sport rider for decades , since before the manufacturers paid attention to us we had to street kit off road bikes ect. to get decent performance , today with great choices available from true off road race ready with lights & lic. plate all the way to near gold wing comfy touring with ‘some’ off road ability and dozens in between today’s the golden age , no ? anyway i have a ktm450exc , just traded a 690adv for a 1090R & my old 380exc

I never hear or see anyone mention the XT250 on these type of videos. Honestly, it never crossed my mind until I recently had breakfast and went for a ride with a guy who rode an XT250 around the world. For him, it was his Super Tenere or the XT250. And he chose the XT250 and had no regrets with that choice. He said his only maintenance was the regular oil changes, valve checks (screw and lock-nut style, a nice feature not to be overlooked because of the simplicity on side of the road in the middle of BFE) and tire swaps. I think he ended up on his original inner tubes, too. Like you, I’m a KLR fan and have owned a couple in the past. Right now, looking to trade in a Ural for another dual sport. On my short list is another KLR, the DRZ, a DR650, or a Royal Enfield Himalayan. I looked at one last week and liked what I saw. I’m looking to test ride one soon to see if it’s got enough oomph for my liking.
