Three of my favorites besides my TW
or maybe a klr650
UNEGUI.MN : honda baja 250
UNEGUI.MN : Suzuki DF200 cross zarlaa
And you all know what a TW looks like, and can do!
I want a bike I can ride hard, and pick up myself when I drop it. Need it to be tough and reliable. It should be comfy enough for long trips on rough roads (or no roads). It must be able to carry 350 lbs (me + gear). I don't need speed, but I don't mind having it if there is a decent stretch of road in front of me. Needs to have parts and aftermarket upgrades aplenty. Simple is best in terms of fixability (word?)...
Feel free to offer opinions on other factors I should be considering. I really, really appreciate having this forum to get knowledge from you guys,
Any information on the aforementioned Honda 250 Baja vs. this Suzi Djebel vs. our beloved TW would be much obliged, especially from those who have hands-on experience on more than one of these.

Thanks. I love the look of those classic dual sports! Although I'll have to wait around for a good long time to find anything that nice around here, I suspect. I shopped KLRs until I went out riding around here. I'll need something lighter.
