After getting home with my used 2005 DL650 and realizing that my local Suzuki dealer misquoted blue book and the internet asking price so that all the money I "talked them down" brought me to the price I should have paid in the first place, I placed a larger "Sucker" sign on my head and rode around my neighborhood.
I now will only deal with the small local motorcycle shop that has great people who really know bikes and will spend the time chatting whether you buy something or not. - Insert shameless plug for RPM Cycles in Ventura, CA here -
By the way, they just got a used Black DL1000 in (not mine) with KTM mirrors, Sargent? seat, Staytune exhaust, stainless break lines, lower fairing, and cool graphics. If you're local and are thinking of a DL1000, it's worth a look.
