    Anyone here have either one of these bikes? I haven't found anyone locally who does, so I thought I'd solicit opinions here.

    If you do/did own one of these bikes, PM me with your impressions, likes/dislikes or words of warning. I'm leaning towards KTM, but want to give BMW a fair shake. I'm not interested in Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki or Yamaha.

    Thanks,

    Cliff

    I have a friend who has the beemer,,, he loves it.. hes put 12k miles on it in 2 years all over the US and mexico...
    I rode it... I have to admit it was very nice... and the bmw expedition luggage was awesome... parts would be hard to get ... and the dealer isnt close

    I like the klr650 myself... but I have another kawa... and for the price I can equip it full on for... maybe half of the beemer... the military knows
