I picked up my 2009(non-ABS) in excellent condition with about 5000 miles last August for $5000.
It was stock except for the Suzuki handgaurds.
I love it, it's the third bike I have owned in my short motorcycling career and far superior to my 2002 Kawasaki KLR 650(don't get me wrong, that was a great bike too) which I sold in order to help pay for the wee.
I too wanted ABS, but have no regrets. In fact I am kind of glad I don't have it for the off road riding that I plan to do.
My only advice is that you hold out for a killer deal, they are out there, that way you have more cash for awesome farkles.
