No Joy in PacNW

So I have finally decided to move from the 09 Wee Adventure to the new 1000 V, and got the blessing from the wife. So off I go to take a look at one up close. Guess what, can't find a single one in the PacNW. No 2014,2015, 2016, etc. Nothing. I refuse to put money down on something I have not seen in person, and the dealers won't order one without money down. What's a guy to do?

Anyone in Oregon riding a new DL1000? I would love to meet up and take a look at yours.

I may take you up on that. I am in Cottage Grove so you aren't that far away. I'll touch base with you within the next week or so if that is okay. I will try to pm you my info.

Too bad we're so far apart. I'd let a fellow Coastie ride mine. I'm in N.Georgia.

SEMPER PARATUS my brother. And Happy Veterans Day (a little early). Thanks for your service. Mine was a great 20 years of adventure.

Found one for you at Lanphere's Beaverton Motorcycles about 120 miles north of you.
It's a 2016 V-1000 Adv for $13k, bought my 2014 V-1000 (non-ADV) there a little over a year ago.
I have no affiliation with them other than I appreciate their dealership and have bought my last 2 bikes there.
I'd meet you halfway to see/ride mine but I'm battling a bit of vertigo and won't ride until I'm back to 100+%.
Best of luck!

I saw that one,, but when I called them they said "sold it yesterday". They say that they will have another one next week. They are supposed to call me. We shall see.

2thDr offered his up for a test ride. He much closer than Beaverton, so I am probably going to take him up on his offer. Thanks mrT350. Hope you get well soon.

There is a '14 V2 with 900 miles on it on craigslist in Redding CA. Comes with nice panniers. Price is $7500.
I went from and 04 Wee to a V2 and am loving it. Good luck.
