I don't.
Read that shootout a few weeks ago.

The overall result (KLR wins) is not relevant to me as my priorities are different:

Quote:
"The DR certainly stretched a few heart strings in its short time with us."..."mostly due to a lighter weight and ease of maneuverability in most situations. It scored major points as the best 650 DS we've ridden in the dirt, with the exception of BMW's whiz-bang Xchallenge."
"If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur." (Red Adair)
