Took the plunge. 2011 V-strom 650 w/ABS. The dude bought it new in 2013. ~20k on the odometer. Has extras like a fork brace, lowering pegs, locking bags, 2 windshields. I'll work on it, change some things around and get it all legal this winter and test it out in the spring with some WV rides. Right not it seems very big, wide and cumbersome although it's only 30lbs heavier than my CBR. It's gonna take some getting used to to see if it's right for me. It definitely looks like it'll eat some miles.
My trip last October down the Deal's Gap from DC on my 91 CBR (original owner)

Congrats and good luck. You have a very different bike than the CBR. You will find it is suited to a different riding style but can still be flogged a bit when the mood/circumstances are right for it.

Enjoy!
