Joe, are you going to do a review on the Honda crf450l? I'm really interested in it. I like the 690, but I'm a little concern about the power - it may be too much for me.

1 week ago

Yes, the 690 does have plenty of power! But its manageable plus you can have it with custom mapping for you if you know where to go and get it dyno tuned. The crf450 rally is a cool bike the maintenance is short on it like 700 to 900 mile oil changes but the 500exec is about the same. There are guys that do huge trips on 500’s so who is to say you can’t in a 450. The 450l is Honda’s equivalent to the 500 KTM. I will keep you posted on the 450l shoot me an email and sign for decal and I will keep you posted. Thanks so much for being part of the channel

good choises there, but you missed the best one of all, ktm640 adventure. they might be getting old now, but nothing else comes close to a do all, has everything you need from the get-go, light weight, long range, good on single trails, good on the open trails, able to carry gear, nice wind covering, dakar looking bike. mine has 75000kms and still going great. i keep looking at a 690/701, but to setup the same/similar to the 640 you have to nearly double the price. All i can say is if ktm build a 690 adventure with the same ideals as the 640 it will be the greatest of all, ktm are you listening!

Well...since you are going to pick at pronunciation. How about you learn how to pronounce the word "similar". Just poking at you. I like your choices. I've owned klr and dr. I much prefer an uncorked DR anyday. Ride on.

3 weeks ago

You are like the 100th person to tell me that and I can't get enough of it, I am horrible with that word! as much as I try I can get it out right when vlogging. I agree the DR uncorked is a beast and a Colorado runner for sure. thanks so much

I've had dual sport bikes since the mid 70s. 1st off I would not consider a dual sport here in the PNW these days that was not fuel injection. To many elevation and temperature changes to screw up the jetting. Fuel injection is so much better than a old school EPA carb. here in the PNW. The WR250R is a GEM for dual sports. The DR 400 would be great if they updated to FI but Suzuki for what ever reason can't seem to do it. Same problem with many 650s.

1 month ago

Agree 100% EFI is just a must these days better fuel mileage and better in altitude as you stated, if you don't ADV travel then no big deal but go up some of the passes in CO and see how the Carb does with no adjustment. Thanks so much for your comment

Someone just stole my 2007 DR 650, so I guess they agreed with you it was a good bike. I will be buying a new 2019 DR 650 to replace it, I absolutely love the DR, It is my commuter to work and back and it runs really nice in the dirt. My son owns a DRZ 400, we both surprisingly discovered the DR was more nimble than the DRZ, likely because it isn't liquid cooled and doesn't have oil in the frame so carries it's weight lower. Good vid bro, enjoyed the narrative on each bike.

1 month ago

trudenl I am sorry to here that but the DR is a awesome bike, the 2019 one will be a beast. Hope who ever stole it gets caught and gets jail time. I hate thieves. Thanks for commenting

Which dual sport would be best for wheelies and drifting?

1 month ago

690 ADV I did a research and I am going to get the crf 450..thanks for helping though

1 month ago

Sakhs I would say maybe a CRF450L, 690/701or a 500/501 KTM/Husky if you are talking street legal from factory. Now if you get a kit then all bets are off, you can make one like a YZ450F, WR450F, crf450 and so on.

1 month ago

690 ADV also is there any off road street legal bike that does what I mentioned before?

1 month ago

Sakhs the 690 has ridiculous power and with SMC wheels will power wheelie in 3rd

690 ADV ok thanks..I really like the ktm 690..I am probably going to look for it

you said under 400 lbs . That pig KLR650 is over 400lbs stock

2 months ago

I want a 40 hp, 6 speed, fuel injected, sub 300 lbs dual sport with long service intervals. The 690 is more power than needed on the dirt. Its also heavier than 300 lbs. The WR needs more power. The KLR needs more power and less weight (its not a dual sport IMHO but a ADV touring bike). The DR and DRZ are ancient and heavy.

Basically a WR450R would be perfect. Everything the same as the WR except more displacement and therefore power.

dahveed284 I agree, but if they did what would we talk about 😂

690 ADV as long as we’re dreaming, can we one day imagine a time when every manufacturer standardizes how they weigh bikes? Full fluids and ready to ride. KTM does dry weight, others do other variations. Makes comparisons difficult (which is why they do it).

yes a wr450r is a dream I want to come true!

I tried to read the comments, but couldn't hit them all. So apologies if this has been asked and answered already. I'm curious...what are your thoughts on the new CRF450L? In your opinion, where does it land on the compromise between dirt/road? Thanks!

3 months ago

james sherry the crf450L is a great bike from what we have found out. It’s a real enduro so Lee that in mind for maintenance they are saying 700 mile oil changes. There won’t be much out there as far as luggage or gear bu that will come soon I am sure. I feel for the price I would get a 500exc or a 690 enduro or even a 450f Yamaha and make it street legal. I hope this helps

3 months ago

Thanks for the opinions....I'm one of those riders just looking to get into dual-sports. Got my eye on an 06 DRZ 400s already done up....

3 months ago

This may be 205 but "It's [690] lighter than all the four bikes." WR250R - 301.5 lbs. DRZ 400S - 320 lbs. 690 Enduro R - 336.5 lbs. Stock wet weights as measured by Motorcycle Consumer News.

3 months ago

perfect info, thanks the 690 is a tad heavier but that little extra weigh helps on the road. The 690 is stock 67HP and with a muffler change to wings make the 690 almost to light but all the bike in here are awesome and I wish I had them all. thanks again

What do you think of the KTM excf line?

3 months ago

Thats great info on the 250 KTM about the only way to pack up a KTM is to get a Rack system on it so it ties into the rear foot pegs if the 250 has any. The 690 has them I think just for show but you can get a rack and that will stiffen up the rear for luggage. Now for the Japanese bikes to KTM , I am sorry but KTM has made leaps and bounds on the reliability and and I am sorry for all that still think KTM just doesn't compare to the Japanese bikes they do and do very well! KTM cost more and thats where everyone uses the Reliability card you pay more and you get more! if you have never owned a KTM then you don't know. Thanks so much for the good info on the 250 excf

3 months ago

+690 ADV I currently own the 2017 250 excf. I had the 250L and the WR250R. First the good: the 250 excf is a superior performer in the relation to the Japanese 250s in every way. Suspension, range, power, weight, reliability, handling off and on road, engineering, ease of service, fit and finish, quality of parts, the list goes on. Yes I said reliability. Both of my Japanese 250s had recalls. Also, I don't race so my service intervals are about the same as what I did on the Japanese 250s. Now the downside: the 250 excf has no sub-frame so if one needs to pack a ton of stuff you'll have to find a workaround. Then again the excf (248 lb fully fueled) is 45 lb lighter than the WR and 55 lb lighter than the 250L. I would categorize the Japanese 250s as OK on the road and relatively poor on the trails. The excf is a step up on the road relative to the J250s due to the adjustable suspension and significantly more power. On the trails the excf is a superstar relative to the J250s. I am not dumping on the Japanese bikes, the KTM costs thousands more so I am not sure it's a fair comparison.

They are fantastic! which one you thinking? the 500 is a beast

Dealerships refusing to work on it means almost nothing.

I'm not arguing the bikes are the same, but it's gonna primarily be legal shenanigans and software that's PURPOSELY keyed to be incompatible with their systems.

I have a Saab 92X, it's literally a Subaru Impreza WRX. Subaru won't do recall work though, because GM is the one financially responsible for Saab products.

The XR 650L is probably the best dual sport for the price. My brother owns both a Yamaha Super Tenere and a Honda XR 650L, and for the type of riding I prefer, I like the XR 650L over the Super Tenere. I've even taken the said XR 650L on my local MX track, and it actually did surprising well. Just the fact that you can comfortably take a XR 650L on a MX track, makes it a lot better than the DR 650 and the KLR 650.

3 months ago

I do agree for all off road but on the road the DR I feel is better, I also based my review on what I have seen for 8+ years dual sport traveling and have only seen one XR650L in the wild with travel gear on it. I know that the XR is a bad to the bone bike but thats why it didn't make my pick and I do love the XR's thank so much for the comment
