New bike (well new for me)

Just picked up a new used 2017 650XT with 860 miles, engine guard, skid plate, and extended warranty to 2022 for $6500 down here in Texas. This is my first adventure bike (owned a dual sport way back in the day) and look forward to reading more posts and learning from all before me. Already picked up some good info and just want to say thanks for all the great info on the boards. Looking forward to being a part of the group and getting out and riding.

That's an awesome purchase Spanky! It does make me wonder why people sell bikes after riding so few miles?

'17 DL650A -bike # 30 something-
'91 Yamaha SR313 Tracker
'97 BMW F650 "Die Haifisch"
'19 Indian FTR 1200S (when it F#%king gets here!)

D.A.S.C for life!

Thanks for good deals

Yes, I am amazed to why someone would spend so much and ride so little. Maybe go rent or borrow one to see if it is for you, but he in the end I got a decent deal and am having fun. Currently working on mounting a top plate and buying some decent riding gear (looking at Klim Carlsbad).
