Possible first Strom

Hello all! Today I came across a used 2002 DL1000 today for a very attractive price. The bike has 65,000 miles on it and the dealer wants $2,000 for it. The dealer says it's in good shape and runs well, I have yet to test drive it because I wasn't in proper gear at the time. I don't really know much about this type of bike, and I was hope you guys could shed some light on the situation! Are there any problems with the 2002 model I should be aware of? Is this a fair price?

To give you some background, my current bike is a 1978 Honda cx500, I like it but I ride 2up a lot more now and just want something more powerful. I don't do any adventuring currently but I would be interested in the future.
