Got a mild conundrum I'd like some opinions and information on. I own a KLX300 at the moment which is road registered and currently has full dirt knobbies on it. I take it off road (duh) and on sunday rides with the boys but obviously with the knobbies im left for dead in the corners and the small tank can be a pain. Other than that its great, starts first or 2nd kick and goes nicely. Now Im selling my car and wish to commute on a bike but have fun on weekends too (doesn't everyone) so the way I see it is motard the KLX or buy a roadie and keep the KLX for dirt. I'm still on my restrictions so first choices would be the usual Across, VTR, ZZR, zeal whatever. Looking at pros and cons I can come up with: Motard pros: Cheaper initially More than likely more fun on the weekends Looks shit hot Already know my bike is mechanically sound Motard cons: No where near the resale on a motard kit as I'd get on another LAMs roadie Still the small tank issue Shit seat!! (Anyone know of a gel seat to fit a 1997 KLX?) Usual other cons of riding a dirt bike on road Speedo problems when going to a smaller front wheel (more cost?) Roadie pros: Better for commuting Longer range Comfier Good resale in most cases Roadie cons: Not as fun (proabaly arguable?) larger initial outlay (maybe also arguable depending on total mortard cost) The usual risk of another 2nd hand motorbike reliability wise Double rego and insurance I was looking towards the motard option (just the basic rims, disks, tyres, anything needed to fit them). Am I right that I'd be spending at least 1500 here? Seems a lot? And I've got the other issue of the speedo. At the moment its a 21" front wheel so going to a 17" means I need a solution there. It's the factory Kawasaki analouge unit now, I take it you can just put other drive gear in or something to fix the error? Anyones who's motarded their bike for more than just the monthly track day could help me a lot here! Let me know your opinions and help me decide between the options!
