Thumbs up 45 Countries on my Euro Trip. Bike for sale

I am sending this in this forum because I want to let everyone in europe know my 2012 DL650a is for sale. I have been traveling europe for over one year and made it to 45 countries. Now sadly I must return to the usa but shipping the bike is too much money so I am selling the bike at a low price if I could find someone to give it a good home. I will also deliver it. Please read below. Thanks Strommers!

The website is preventing me from putting a link please email suzukivstromeuro at gmail dot com for more information or see my ad listed in the venice section of craigslist

I am completing my 14 month European adventure. I rode through 45 countries and now sadly it is time to go home. I decided to sell my bike rather than ship back to the USA. I want the bike to go to a good home so if you know anyone interested in a great bike for a great price that wants to start adventure touring this is a perfect solution. Sorry to bother but I would love this bike to go to a Stromtrooper member or friend of one. Share this information with anyone you know.

Story: About a year ago I shipped this motorcycle from Los Angeles to Germany and have been traveling in Europe through 45 countries. I love this motorcycle and it has been amazing. Never a major problem and super reliable. It starts every single day without a problem. I sadly don't want to pay to have it shipped back to the USA. This bike has never been crashed but it has fallen over 6 times since I have owned it. It is an ADVENTURE bike and has some scratches and bruises but mechanically it is in great shape. It has ABS and Fuel injection at this price point!! I have provided all maintenance recommended in the user manual. I replaced the chain 6 months ago along with the brakes. There are two tires changed in the last 6 months and both are in great shape. This bike is ready to ride to Mongolia tomorrow if you wanted. I have zero doubts it would get you there. Also, there is over 1000 dollars worth of aftermarket parts on the bike. Basically the only thing that is in the photos that is not included in the price is the GPS mounting bracket, which I will remove upon delivery. I left all aftermarket parts on the bike on purpose because I want this bike to go to a good home and someone to use it as their tool to explore Europe like I did. Amazing for long rides, mountain rides, weekend camping trips, city riding. It is such a versatile motorcycle. The seat is comfortable. You just need to put your stuff in in a bag and strap it to the back and go. The bike runs like a champion. In the pictures attached I have tried to be as honest as possible and show the scratches. Each one is a memory and the bike wears them with pride. When you wash and wax this bike it still shines like a champion. I think the price is very fair but I am willing to negotiate a bit. I have the bike listed in Milan as that is somewhat central in Europe but I am willing to deliver the bike pretty much anywhere in Europe because I am a motivated seller. I have the original California State Title document in my possession. I will accept payment in cash (at a bank) or paypal. Full payment must be received before I hand over the keys. I am honest and just want to sell this amazing bike to anyone who has wanted an adventure bike but not had the money for a brand new one. This one will do the same job as bikes that are 3 times as expensive. I get compliments on the motorcycle wherever I go.

Currently the Bike has about 58,000 km on it. Depending where you are located it will have those added miles when it arrives.

I bought this bike because it was so highly rated in all categories especially reliability. You may google for yourself as this website will not allow me to link to one

Shame it can't come home.
Welcome back to LA when you get here. I'd like to listen to your tales of travels, Gulliver.
