I got one! Thanks to you!
After you guys helped convince me that a DL650 was the right choice, I found one and bought it. I'm in NE Pennsylvania, drove all the way to WV for what I think was a hell of a deal. It's a '13 w/ 3700 miles but never titled. It was a demo. You would never know it to look at it, still looks brand new. This bike has heated grips, hand guards, Adventure wind screen, engine cowl, chain guard, tank protector, trunk, side pannier racks, and center stand. I got it for $6800 plus tax/title and a $50 fee from the dealer. I sat on one just like it last week, only w/out any accessories and no miles, and that dealer wanted $8000.
Anyway, I've only ridden it about 15 miles but I love it already! Going from a Vstar 1100 to this is like going from walking in mud to jumping on a trampoline! It is the epitome of fun. As you can tell I'm a bit excited about my new purchase. Thanks to those of you who recommended this bike to me.
Now if I could only sell my Vstar...
