Hi guys. So I've decided to get back on the saddle. I've had a klr but looking at a 650 Transalp as well.
Can get a 2008 klr for R17k. Will need some work. Or a Transalp for R35k.
Which way to go...
Its a helluva thing

Missing it BIG TIME

This should be interesting. Following. I am not very familiar with the trans, but know that the simplicity of the klr is very nice, knowing that most problems can be solved anywhere. Spare' s though seems to be the biggest problem, and a lot of places are not interested to work on klr's, because owners are not known to have lots of money, or don,t like spending it, as apposed to ktm, Honda owners. Speed is also not a known as a klr attribute and getting to distance places, and not really interested in your immediate weekend areas can be a bugger as well.
Those are the few things I can think of now early in the morning

Transalp is a Honda so it just does not break. Have been known to go to 200 00km with no issues. The older 650 also had a 21'" front Wheel so were also good offroad. TA will kick KLR ass on the highway.
Fuel consumption on a TA is heavy.
I like to drink lots of beer??
