Default You don't have to pay 9k...

...go buy a Monster. They're cheaper than you think. My 2001 M750 cost me $7k out the door in it's still my favorite bike that have I owned. I don't think they're much more now.

How X treme!



Wonder if a truss come in the tool kit, for when you dump it in a sand wash.



Just the throught of hitting a road berm at speed on a 344 lb dual sport makes me cringe.



Xiting to say the least...

I tested both, my vote is the BMW. It will be better in tight trails, but the XR is more in my price range.

The weight isn't terrible. Just make believe your riding a mid 70's mx'er with fuel injection and smother/stronger motor.

Like a '76 JPR 360 Pursang that weighed 214 lbs?



Ca mon man, 344 lbs for an enduro? Even an old XL600 isn't that porky...

You're assuming that the claimed weights are anything near accurate.
