2012 DL650 Adventure

I'm new here. I have been looking for an adventure but can't find anyone who has it.

Has anyone here seen one?

I'm in southeastern PA

Have you gone on Suzuki's web site and looked for dealers around your area?

I have one in Seattle - the only one the dealer has received so far. A second is already queued but hasn't arrived yet; I think it is spoken for. Suzuki claims that there have been accessory supply issues for the last few months (since I placed my down payment).

There were none in Massachusetts yet a couple of weeks ago when I picked up my Halloween colored version. They were supposed to start flowing to dealers this month.

There was one on the sales floor in central MN. Probably a bit of a drive though. Fly and ride!

My dealer's having problems getting the standard models,so he did the same thing Suzuki is doing with SW Motec parts and actually using larger bags, for about the same $$$$. Cheers--BB

I saw one in Redding, Ca last week, they had a new adv model (black) but they are waiting for the aluminum paniers, new standard (orange), new DL1000 and an old 650, all in a row. It was interesting seeing them all lined up. The orange standard was the best looking of the lot though.... LOL....

I have visited six dealers in the area. Only one had the standard. Neither knew when they would get the Adventure.

In your opinion

In your opinion, is it worth waiting on the adventure?

I like the wider windscreen and side cases. Would it be smart to get the standard and add these things later?

Also, I will probably need to get the seat trimed since I can only tiptoe on the stock.
