Looking to buy

Hello all. I've been hanging around latley reading up the Vstrom. I'm looking at an 02 1000 for 5k. It has 12k on it and is the yellow and black model, not my first color choice but it does look good. Oh yeah it also comes with the rear Givi box and a larmar lip added to the screen. Is this price hi/lo or right on?

I'm not saying that the price is too much, but what I will say is this:

I bought a "new leftover 2005", still in the crate, in June of 2007 for $6600 plus tax. Not much more money, and it was brand new.

The top box and lip is worth MAYBE $400.

You might want to look around a bit more before buying.

I spend LOTS of time looking a various motorcycle ad's looking for gems to restore and you should search a bit longer. I won't take you long to find 4-5K miles(with accessories) for less money.

Good choice of bike though...good luck and let us know when you get your!
