I've had about 30 now in the last 9 or 10 years, if you include scooters. I seem to average about 3 per year. A while ago I bought a new 2009 KLX250SF (supermoto) and also bought a used 2009 KLX250S. I got a good price on both, so I think they very nice bikes for the money. The suspension is quite good, especially compared to a TW. Power is modest, very gentle, but decent. My KLX wouldn't climb as well as my TW last summer going up Imogene Pass in Colorado (14,000 ft.), but did make it. I later put a pipe and jet kit on my S and it helped a bit. I like them and would buy another if a good deal presented itself. I met up with author, Dr. Greg Frazier http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/284/69...aska-Bush.aspx a while ago and he reported liking his 2009 KLX250S as he can pick one of these up when dropped, as opposed to the the BMWGS or KLR650 he has frequently ridden on his around the world (5 time) ventures. Read into it what you will, but seem to be a pretty good sign.
