Ken is on the mark there. The Wee strom is a great street bike that can handle gravel just fine, though tire wise might be a little slippy. The DR is a great off road bike that works well on the street and the KLR is more street than dirt. The DR and KLR are going to be cheaper and feel more comfy as your coming off a dirt bike anyway. The DRZ 400 SM would be a great choice but may get you into trouble as it begs for bad behaviour. The DR and KLR both will do the Ton but dont like it, they shoot up to 80 pretty quick then will slowly accelerate further. So if your In 80+mph traffic all the time they arent the most comfortable at those speeds. Then the wee strom would be the choice.
