I wrecked my DL1000 about a year ago, and have been waiting for the 2012 to be available. I went to my local dealer and he gave me this story that the new DL650 is so "hot" that he only has 2 coming in this year, and I better put down a down payment if I want one. This is a good size dealer. How can this be ? Is it just a him being the snake he is known to be? I have no problem traveling to buy a bike. My last bike I bought in Tennessee and trailed back to Florida.
