    I am going to do the same thing. I am looking at the new Suzuki 400 and put a Baja Designs kit on it. The only problem is that I hate Suzuki's. But for the bike, it is the best thing out there for what I want.

    The idiot factor makes me nervous too...I'm thinking of just a tiny puny Yamaha TW200...for some reason I think they look cool!!...I'm not big on the crotch rocket idea...figure if the thing cain't go as fast maybe I have a better chance of not killing myself...the ol' addage "Speed Kills" :)

    I had one and sold it a year ago this month. I miss it but then again i get on the freeway and thank GOD i sold it.

    K5XLR8R, you can use your k5 as colateral to get a loan. get a used one dam duals depreciate faster than you can drop them.

    kawi's KLR650 is a hell of a bike, too. i'm a fan of team green from way back in the days of the mighty triples and KZ's, but i just read an article in a m/c mag that said a '90 or so KLR got 70mpg.
    i'm not positive on the year, it was a story of some dude cruising to a remote town in canada that had just recently been connected to the civilized world with a road. he had a few mods to the bike, but he said it was basically stock.
    70mpg!!!!
    the ol' blazer better not break down in front of a bike dealership.....
