So today I met a guy on a red v-strom 650, he's not a trooper yet, but maybe soon. He said he had a little over 58000 on his bike with no problems and he maintained as he should, but then he said he was in the looking around for another 650, I asked as a replacement? He said "No, but sometimes you can find them with low miles for around $4200 or so and at that price I'd pick up another one for when this one wears out." I asked him when he thought his would wear out? He said He wasn't sure, but why not have another one. I mentioned that even if you found one for $4000 after you add title, tax, insurance, and the plates every year it adds up. I also mentioned for that price you should be able to replace everything that might go out on the bike he already owned and still spend a lot less. I've never heard of anything going out on a wee that cost a whole lot (like $600 or more). Anyways I thought he seemed like a great guy (he does ride a v-strom so how bad can he be) I just found this line of thinking a little strange,......sure if I could find a killer deal on another v-strom I might buy it, maybe to him that price is a killer deal, what do you think? ever tempted to have 2 of the same bike?
