OK so Iíve been invited by my old man and a few of his cronies to accompany him on the dempster to Inuvik this summer. Im pretty sure my R6 is not the ideal machine for this one so that means a cheap alternative must be found.
Basic research has led me to the KLR 650 as the likely steed.
-Im looking for some general advise on what to look for and what to avoid on the KLR.
My budget is around $4,000.
-Iím guessing this is the low end of what one should spend on a worthy machine that has to travel 7,600 km in 2 weeks.
Im starting to look now so if anyone has a line on a decent KLR feel free to let me know.
Also if people can recommend an alternative bike (Suzuki DRZ 650??) at a similar price point that would be great.
Considering a few people have done this trip already (greenboy) any general trip advice would be greatly appreciated.
