Maybe my first vee? 2012 V-Strom 1000
I found a beauty at what I think is a good deal. She's a 2012 with 23,700 miles, red, with 3 givi bags (45L sides), givi crash bars, Sargeant seat, fog lights, and extra led light strips wired up.
The dealer says it's been on their floor all season. I haven't ridden her yet due to the battery being dead when I went in. They want $5,500. Do I have wiggle room to negotiate here or is that already pretty low?
I will use it to short commute when the weather is nicer and eventually plan interstate trips, 2up with the wife. We have mountain ranges, coastlines, and everything inbetween within a couple hours ride for day trips.
I might as well ask the noobie question too: (I'm 6' 2" 225lbs) Is this a well-suited bike or my needs?
I guess I'll know if she at least feels right for me in a couple days on the test ride.
