The KLR650 is the best for around the world touring and across America! Because of parts and dependability! Good at everything but great at nothing.
*ed note; especially for "Adventure" Touring, the KLR's I've seen seem hard to beat! :) I don't expect you'll ever see a Raider out in the middle of the Gobi Desert *this 'contributor' was shy, didn't leave his/her name :)*
