So I'm thinking about buying a wee...

2006 V-Strom 650
Light Blue
Top and side boxes
Magnetic tank bag
Knuckle guards of a 1000
Taller windscreen (original goes with it too)
GPS holder
Camera holder
Crash bars around engine
Skid plate
Aftermarket Slipon
around 12k Miles

1500 bucks? Good deal?

$1,500 for an 06 VStrom 650 with only 12,000 miles?

It's TOO good a deal. It's either stolen, been wrecked, or the seller is a meth-head needing a fix. The accessories you listed add up to more than $1,500.

Seriously, that's too good to be true. Is it rusty and dinged? Seat in shreds? Engine won't start? WHAT!?!?!

Just lucky I suppose!, My wife's boss is moving to Wyoming and is looking to unload it before he leaves. It does have a broken right front signal light, if you want to count that. But otherwise is in good shape aside from a couple small scuffs, and I thought 1500 sounded like a STEAL as well.

that is an insanely low price. i dunno. economy is down, lotta baby boomers are selling their bikes, overall bike sales are down. i'd say it is a buyers market. i've seen some incredible deals floating by.

if everything goes well I'll be picking her up on saturday! Will pictures next the the rest of my steeds ('08 Farkled KLR, and a Honda 250 Reflex (my wifes)) Pretty stoked over all I was torn between the klr and the wee when I bought my first bike. I love my KLR dearly and she will always have a place in my stable, but I'm looking for something a little more cush and comfy for 2 up. This is one of those deals that kind of fell in my lap. I wasn't really looking for another bike but a great strom at a great deal? I can't pass that up.

She's resting comfortably in her new home now:) I've been going over her for the last few days, I ordered the buell signals they should be here on Friday. After that I suspect she'll be ready to go, just need to break out the heated gear.

Holy crap, that's the deal of the century. You should know your wife's boss did you an insane favor.
