Here’s my recently purchased off Craigslist 2012 650. Gentleman that sold it to me gave me quite a deal (and even pointed me to this forum). I’ve ridden dirt bikes most of my life, but this is my first road bike. So far, really enjoying it.
I bought this 2012 a few weeks ago. It comes with a decent amount of Farkle but I’m changing the tires to Michelin Road 5’s because I live in an urban area and I don’t get in the dirt as much as I would like. I like the way the bike looks but it’s so utilitarian and so...black and plain, so much black! I am going to put a few “tasteful” decals on. 17k miles and two brothers full exhaust that you can’t see. $3,700.
No longer looking for the Red Tupperware. Could not find anyone who wanted to trade for my Gray, so I bit the bullet and bought the five pieces that I needed. Here she is in her new Red color with her Garage mates.
My 2013 DL650A. I recently purchased it from older guy who can't ride it any more due to medical issues. It was in great shape with 24k kms. He even kept all the warning stickers on it (all friggin 11 of them! A whole evening with heat gun and Goof-off to get rid of them).
This bike is temporary for me. I have a 2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 XRT which I ride to southern U.S. in Fall and bring back in Spring. This year it's stranded in storage locker in L.A. due to COVID (I'm from Canada). So this bike is to make due until I can get the Tiger back, then it will go up for sale.
It was the 'Expedition' version which came with the 3 aluminum 'Suzuki' branded Givi cases with quick-release racks, SW-Motech Engine Bars, Plastic lower engine guard, and Suzuki hand guards. He had added Oxford grip heaters, SW-Motech side stand switch guard, SW-Motech Cases Racks Locks, centre stand, Madstad touring screen, and replaced the Suzuki hangars with Barkbusters Storms. Came will all papers, instructions, and receipts since new.
Here's what I've added to it:
SW-Motech Aluminum Skid Plate
Converted all lights to LED
Chrome spray paint inside of signal light housings
Digital electronic flasher
Skene P3 LED Tail/Brake Lights Package
Frameless wide-angle mirrors
USB outlet at steering head (on switched circuit)
Just picked up the V today, I’ve been shopping for about a month. It’s a 2013 with 5600 miles. Has a lot added already;
Moose panniers and top box
Lowered foot pegs
