From what I can tell in the pics, I really like the grey (charcoal/anthracite being my fav color). If I get the ADV model, do you think anyone would be interested in buying the crash bars?

The 2014 DL1000 concept is already old news.

http://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...ld-u-like.html
http://www.stromtrooper.com/dl-1000-...1000-whoa.html

Also, the 2012 DL1000 was announced later than most other models so we might see a 2013 yet.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

Get a new Aprilia Caponord 1200 instead.

I have owned 4 Aprilia machines (from 2003-2010) and never had any problems with the electrical components. I think much of that was in the past and not specific to the Aprilia brand. Kinda like comparing a 2012 Triumph to a 70s model.

That said, I just bought another Suzuki.

According to the Canadian website, it looks we're getting the 2013 only as a base model in grey, or grey [sic]. Something doesn't feel quite right about that, however, so I suspect there will be at least a couple of other options added as winter progresses.

I'm sure you'll see more options. Listing grey twice doesn't make sense and Canada has had more choices than the USA for years. You had white, black and orange available on basic and expedition models in 2012.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles.

What would really be nice is a 750 version of the wee and staying the same weight and size.

'67 Norton
75 Norton
'12 DL650
'62 Jawa

According to a dealer near Montreal, the 3 colors will be available for each of the 3 models. (Regular, SE and Expedition)
