Hows it going guys/gals? Well coming from sport bikes and dirt bikes i haven't ridden in a while so I'm looking to buy another bike. Sadly my budget isnt that high but its enough to get one in my area. Any help and advice would greatly be appreciated!! Im in the 3-5k range but the cheaper the better.

70% highway touring / 30% off road

Here are the ones in my area. If you have a better idea for another bike let me know as well.

One I am looking at is for sale for 4k and has about 14-15k miles ( 2012 650 )



2012 Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS Adventure for sale. The bike has 14,649 miles. SW-Motech steel skid plate and crash bars added. Plastic hand guards have been replaced with metal reinforced Barkbusters. Comes with the factory locking metal panniers. Clear title, the bike also will come with Factory Service manual and owners manual. All serious offers will be considered. Test rides welcome with cash in hand. The Bike was inspected on early August by Polaris West and given a clean bill of health. Will show report at test ride if requested.

For 4K, I like the black '12 you have pictured....it has some nice needed farkles already installed. If you don't like hard bags(like me) you can sell those oem bags for $3-400, then slap some Nelson Rigg soft waterproof bags on your racks for $200:

I think the 2012 falls under the tappet and stator recalls, so make sure they have been done, or negotiate accordingly since you will have to take the time to do it.
