I found a very clean 1 owner '02 with 17,000 miles. Always garaged, fair weather mature rider. $3500.00. sounds lile a hot deal, is there any disadvantage in the '02?. My current ride is an '08KLR and it doesn't have quite enough hiway capabilities, a kick in the twisties and gravel roads, but so is the V-Strom, so I've heard. I'd rather not spend the 9 or 10 grand for the '08 but would if there were huge differences.
