Been in the saddle 44 years, I have toured, commuted, ran wild etc.
After 38 bikes and my present rides I got hold of an 06.
I've always loved the big single for it's simplicity and narrowness and flickability.
This is a fabulous machine. No it won't do a ton comfortably. It will scoot at fun speed and with proper rubber will corner as well as most .
The way the power comes on when held it torque through the cogs is very enjoyable.
If you want one, ride it first, they are a cult bike because there is a distinct character to the beast.
It is a machine that will handle off road for the mild to mid talented adventurer.
I t is so easy to work on if it requires. It rarely does. Fill and go.
Tour at LEGAL motorway speed, green lane at just up to the edge of grip envelope and pull off into that farm or forest road with aplumb.
The problem with most bike reveiwers is that always compare unlike for unlike. This is not a VMax , an R1, VFR and on.
It isn't even an F650. It fits in one catagory, the KLR650 one.
All bike have their place and all riders have their bikes.
Don't be put off by "it won't do this as good as...." It does everything as good as you'd like if you like it.
