Hi all! I have "downsized" to a 2007 DL1000. I was on a Kawasaki Vulcan (825 lbs), and two Goldwings (over 900 lbs each) so at 550 lbs the Vstrom feels feather light! I love the power, the handing, the motor! I got a great deal on this bike. It has 17,500 km(11,000 miles), full give luggage, center stand, madstad bracket, heated gloves and vest, gps mount, powered tank bag and a new Olympia touring jacket. All for $6,000 Cdn. I'm looking forward to day trips and over night camping trips to the mountain parks near my home!

Very nice find there.
Now get some Shinko 705's on there and tear up those Canadian roads.
