Actually the KLR's weight hasn't changed much in many, many years. Even the ones from the mid-late 90's weighed something like 375# or so fully gassed. That's quite a bit lighter than a V-strom (which is actually a street bike that a few guys discovered can do light off road stuff. That in turn spawned an after market for offroad accessories) The only one of the KLR line that was a bit lighter was the KLX650, which was only built( or sold in NA) for about 2-3 years in the late 90's I think.I owned a DRZ400 for a few years, but also have some familiarity with many of the the other bikes listed, as I've been heavily involved with the DS & offroad community for 6 years now & have lots of friends and acquaintances that ride them(KLR's, DR's, XR's, V-Stroms, WR's etc.).As far as the F800 goes- it may be more reliable than you think - or at least this one was OK(the KTM on the other hand......) :http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=653492&h...If you plan on doing a lot of pavement - a 650 V-strom would probably be ideal & they are priced right.Here's a good ride report thread done by a friend of mine on a V-strom:http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=538108&h...
