i did the klr thing a couple of years ago, but kept taking it down trails i had no business on. i got rid of it and replaced it with a ktm exc 520
i like the big strom, i almost got one instead of the tiger.

iv'e been looking at 06's the prices seem to sway a lot anywhere from 9-16k
i dont even know if i'll like riding one.
btw:my current adventure bike is a tiger
i wonder how a R1200GS or a 990 adventure would fit in to possibly replace the tiger.
I like your taste in bikes Sandman. The Triumph Tiger is a cool bike. All of the models you mention a little out of my price range and even more out of my "Can I really get the use out of it" range, thus I ride the KLR650 and a Suzuki V-Strom 650. I find a 650cc is all I really need for power and economy.
Sorry to hijack your thread Euro. All BMW bikes are really cool in my opinion. If you have the dough go for it. I wish I could justify a F650GS. But no one ever sings the praises for this model over the KLR or a similar machine.
Check out ADVforum.com. Good place to find a nice used bike.
