I got the Husqvarna TR650 Terra
Funny as I really considered it as well...got the BMW XChallenge instead. Pretty similar bikes. Terra is just heavier.

I think a few people here are lying to themselves what bike they need  :biggrin:   :deal:   :peepwall:

They don't know shit.

I answered right but they got it wrong. :patch:

No, scooter with side wheels was the right answer  :imaposer:



Would probably have been right, but that's not the answer they gave!

Actually I suppose a KLR could be considered a "one size fits all" response in honest practical terms ignoring individuals ego's and prejudices.  :peepwall:

Julle het gesien dat die questionnaire vir "FIRST Adventure" fietse is? Vir mense wat nog wil betrokke raak? Ek dink dit werk nogal goed - ek het 'n XT250 gekry....

Sommige adventure noobs kan al goed bike ry. Bv manne wat uit enduro kom.

Daar was mos 'n vraag van iets soos "hard en fast on gravel"

Nee ek stem. Maar dink jy nie 'n ou wat van enduro kom sal meer baat vind by 'n 650 single met wat sy verwagte ry gewoontes nie?

Hier is nou ouens wat moan omdat die "Adventure" vraagstuk nie GS1200 gegee het nie?

I was recommended the KLR.

I suppose that the site doesn't have old bikes like my 1981 XL500S on it  :ricky:

Die meeste wat ek ken wat van enduro na adventure gaan sal nie gelukkig wees op 'n 650 nie. Maar hulle het ook nie 'n GS1200 gekoop nie.
Bikes wat hulle nou ry: 990R, 950SE, 690 en een 800GS (maar hy kla oor min krag)

My ondervinding is weer heel anders - meeste op 650 (veral DR) en myself ook - het al 3 KLR's gery en verlang nie na grooter nie, veral nie waar ek meeste ry nie.

Maar om terug te kom na die vraagstuk - kom ons stem saam dit is 7 vrae op die internet wat jou gaan antwoord soos al die FB vraagstukke "What band should you be in".
