DR650 - 40/60 teer grond all rounder
XT660R - 60/50 teer grond all rounder
KLR650 gen 1 - 50/50 teer grond all rounder
XR650L - meeste geskik vir off road 30/70

daai som klink nie reg nie

If only it was biased the other way - 50/60.

That would be the elusive machine we're all looking for. :3some:

i see no-one has mentioned the X-Country from BMW.  @petri oosthuizen , go ride the thing, they're actually lekker bikes that do grow on you.  Low seat height, reliable as the day, comfy and more capable than you think.  disregard your prejudices towards a chain driven BMW cos you're going to miss out on great scoots.  20km/l easy too, i wouldn't mind another in the garage for sure.  Also, keep in mind that the lighter the bike is the taller it can be.  Its much easier pushing a 160kg scoot around than a 260 kg behemoth.

They do look like nice bikes, nice light 650cc.

But I'm VERY sorted for now............

I have said it before if Yamaha brought out that very same 34L with the 600E engine and bigger better oil cooler that is mounted where wind can actually flow through it they would sell containers full. :deal: :thumleft:
