I play in dirt with one cylinder. I know what you mean.
I would love this for gravel adventure. I'm certainly not in the league as many of you are off-road and mx.

It seems like I destroy my wee strom bike a little more each time I get out on the gravel.

I am loving mine so far. Contemplating what I might want to sell to gain some garage space. ST1300 has already been sold, the old KLR is probably next.
I would think the T-700 would do anything the KLR can do and more. I would like to ride one but purchase will have to wait a couple years.

It is a little heavier, doesn't have the range of my Gen 1 KLR with an IMS tank, and isn't built to be dropped repeatedly with out sustaining major damage like a Gen 1 KLR is. Everything else the T7 does lots better. The engine is absolutely fanstastic.

That has been a good soldier, but sooner or later all soldiers retire or die. You no longer take it on the trails and I haven't seen you ride it as far as Dallas since you first test rode the Super Ten. It needed a jump that day to get home.

That's a big statement there knowing how much you love the KLRs.
