Guys thanks for the responses, in true Wilddog fashion!

Evert read all the responses and I must admit he is still a bit confused. All the attributes off the different bikes he accept, but what is most important for him and to the rest of us is: "APLLICATION" I know who I am and I ride the bike that is an extention of my personality :pot:

I think and I have told him so, KLR because of long distance ability, and if he can afford it, 660Z. I think to start of with a bike that is nice to ride a 100km a day contributes to be a happy biker, and it has good off the tar manners. If you get to a point that you want to go either into more tar or more off tar and even off the gravel roads, you can do so, but to start with either a KLR or a Tennere, you are going to be a happy biker for life.

If it so happens that you never became a serious biker, either one of those two bikes, you can keep for ever ???

I would consider DR650 or KLR 650 new for what he wants to do.

I would have to agree, more towards the DR though as the Honda can get quite "Jumpy" off road, for the inexperienced (HAHAHAHA I shat myself the first time on the XR off road). KLR does ok without suspension mods but will do alot better with Mods (Rode my mates KLR after mods and almost enjoyed it more than my XR, alot more civil for us inexperienced) Just an opinion from an inexperienced rider.
Mesmerising stuff?!?

'Evert read all the responses and I must admit he is still a bit confused.'

If you see all the buying and selling on this site,you will eventually come to the conclusion that there are a lot of CONFUSED  people here.

Buy anything,you will eventually sell it again

Secondhand is the way to go,lot of bargains around.
