Hey folks, a friend awhile back said it would be cheaper to buy an econo car than to buy a motorcycle? I've always wanted to purchase an adventure bike like either a V-Strom 650 or KLR 650. My friend told me I'll go through tires quickly and they cost a whole lot more than just auto tires as one example he gave me. I'm not trying to start a war, gas is outrageous, I know the V-Strom is more refined and up to date, while the KLR is a jeep and is an old bike, and even though is very popular. Is it worth it? Frankly, I'm looking towards getting an adventure bike like the ones I've mentioned. Or I can get a VW. I really want the bike, but is it feasable, if you all can tell me about the cost advantages, it'll help.
