Did this video help you?

joseynovember: Love the soundtrack ... Name PLS 

nucsol: KLR is more for range and road, the suspension is lower but firmer. The KLR is a pack mule not a performance bike, it weighs 61 pounds more on average and it's an excellent utility bike. DR is lithe, light, higher up, has less range but more goose goose in the mud and not as comfortable. It's all what you want the bike for and if your going to spend more time on the road than off the KLR is your best choice.

Rick T: Good Music 4 once! ENJOY :)

DRugfree1987: what no xr650l? xr650r?

ASDFGH200: anyone actually saw the kawasaki how can you compare two things when you show just one lol

wheelsofnz: @dakaraabbccdd If you look at videos of both bikes under the search dirt track you will quickly see that the DR is a much more accomplished off road bike. The DR is much lighter than the KLR which is what you want off road.

secretgardenproject: if you want to see an xr then buy me one. @DRugfree1987

saintvernon77: GO DRRIDERS.COM good vid, good bike and well done from another dr rider- your bike looks better

secretgardenproject: yeah, he said it got a bit hairy in the sandy bits

secretgardenproject: @onehitkill google "motard dr650" and you'll find the website with the free info pack. its a very easy mod if you can access the honda cbr250rr used - very common in australia, fairly common in UK and europe but rare as hen's teeth in the USA. cost me $600 complete, got a mate to machine the specified wheel spacers.

secretgardenproject: buy us a second camera and you'll see heaps of it ;-)

onehitkill: what do you recomend the klr or dr??

secretgardenproject: it was about even in our opinion. although no lightweight the dr is lighter than the klr and has a punchier engine. with dual purpose tires fitted it would be better in the dirt than the klr.

MrRusty316: the klr is more stylish for street riding, and does very good offroad.If you like a dual sport bike thats similar to a dirt bike , the dr is for you.Overall, the klr has more power but heavier, and the dr is light and good at jumps for a dual sport.

secretgardenproject: @graemelockieable why did honda stop making the xr650?? i've met a pile of guys who say this, and reckon if honda just added electric start and dropped a bit of weight off it they would have the ultimate bullet proof dual purpose bike.

secretgardenproject: typical, the only critics on youtube never post their own vids. if you are such a good rider try posting evidence instead of being whingeing about everyone's vids.

AraiShoei: both KLR and DR are good bikes... you can't compare these two when the rider does not have good offroad skills... i've seen some riders would buy DR because it is claimed as better than KLR in offroad, but these riders are bad riders and always afraid to ride on sand, mud, etc.. so how can you tell DR is a better bike?

secretgardenproject: thanks, the guys will be the first to admit they aren't crap hot riders, but a gopro camera and a bit of editing makes anything good watching

phillipseric: everything looks cooler through a fish eye lens....

onehitkill: this might be s tupid question but how hard was it to do the super moto mod?? and how much time/money?

epicstove: Nice work with the editing. Well done.

Bugzee894: The cruel sea - Better get a lawyer. An Aussie indie band youtube.com/watch?v=vEB0l6OqLR4

phillipseric: @graemelockieable The video is sped up. Thats not real-time, but cool nonetheless.

mmcfee1: I can't imagine running a DR without full knobbies, but then I'm off road 90% of the time........Nice vid!

secretgardenproject: @graemelockieable um, the video is sped up a bit! those guys arent good enough to actually do those speeds real time.

The2012waiting: DR

germanshep1: good vid like the music. 08klr owner and i love the dang thing,Beat it to death and it keeps clicking.Like a ak dunk it in mud and it still fires.

pizzaonaninja: unbelivably, the d650 is the local police bike

graemelockieable: Dude, you are either very brave, an accomplished rider, or a little bit crazy to ride the DR at those speeds off road on those tires! Maybe a little bit of all three? Ha! Ha! Enjoyed the video, nice bikes & nice riding. I ride a Honda XR650L. Similar to the DR but mine does not have the super moto set up. Mostly stock. Lots of fun on & off road. Thanks for sharing your ride with us. Keep it safe.

tosgem: Sowhich one's better offroad? I imagine with the road tyres on the DR it wasn't much of a competition

Ffynn: Nice video. Those street tires on dirt make me nervous.

ralph66hd: love this vid whats the song first time ive herd it and love it.

graemelockieable: @secretgardenproject Sorry, been away from my computer for a while. The XR650R has the kick start. The XR650L has electric start. I'm in my late 40's so I have the electric start. I thought they stopped making them in '07 or '08 but a mechanic at a shop I take my bike to just told me the other week that he saw an XR650L rebadged for 2011 in a Honda shop. As far as weight goes, my bike is 327lbs dry & 348lbs curb. Don't know much about video production, I presumed it was real time speed.

mogearz: @ralph66hd hey did you ever find out the name to this song im trying to find it

secretgardenproject: @germanshep1 glad yours is working. the KLR in this vid totally mangled its top end at only 25000 miles, so badly the owner parted it out instead of fixing it.

secretgardenproject: @onehitkill imo i think the KLR is better as a budget adventure bike for road and easy dirt roads. but if you want to include some dirt riding then the DR would be the way to go. if you google "klr650 v dr650" you'll get a pile of opinions that might offer good advice (or not) ;-)

secretgardenproject: 'better get a lawyer' by the cruel sea, an aussie band. they did a pile of awesome songs in the 90s.

secretgardenproject: @graemelockieable nup, speeded it up. wide angle lens makes things look slower so just upped the speed so it wasn't such a long boring vid.
