I don't know anything about '10s. If you have an 09 ABS you can buy, I'd go for it. They have historically been in very short supply since introduced in 07.

While you are waiting you are not riding...it's a no brainer. As recommended already, look for a deal on a K9 ABS

I went to the local steeler and he is out, but he can get me one for about 7400 plus tax. He said he is knocking 300 off and the mfg has a 300 rebate.

If he can actually get it, I would go for it.

It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow.

Riding now is always better than riding later.

..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

Bought new ABS

Thank you for the input, I just needed a push. I found a local dealer who wanted to make a sale. I could not refuse the price. I usually buy used, but I now have a new 09 ABS. Let the customizing begin.
