Pretty good article with lots of info on old and modern 600cc Dual Sports. I really like that SWM!

The mention all the old bike at the top of the article (incl. the KLR.) All the bikes w/ a paragraph about them and a pic are new and available to purchase today. The whole point of the article is what new bikes fill the same market segment as the favorite bikes of old (acknowledging they have to meet modern emissions, noise, etc requirements. "Only, we have to be realistic; we can’t build the bikes of the past anymore, however much we loved them.")
