Personally with your situation I'd snag that 2017 ...it's rare deal and a way to get her into riding.

Alas, the shop made a mistake and posted a SV650 as a Vstrom - wrong machine. I had my hopes up too because in white with the blue trim it was likely to be a XT. Looks like I'll be rollin' on a tan CB500X. I appreciate all the feedback, guys - many thanks.

Thanks. I put the deposit on her today - they came down a little on the price and I got them to include a full maintenance visit for next season since there'll be so little left of this season by the time I get the permit done and the bike on the road. I'll put this year and next season on the stock set-up, then next winter I'll tackle the RR3 upgrade ;-)
