Greetings from Regina, Sk. Canada. 68 years young
I posted in the general forum upon joining outlining looking at a vstrom to replace my Goldwing that I sold last year so I could down size
Have my eye on at 2-13 vstrom 650 xt complete with:
aluminum top box and side panniers (black)
skid plate Suzuki supplies not aluminum
just over 22,000 kms (13,750 mi. for my American friends)
Dealer is asking $7500. Bike was sol through them and then the owner decided to get a big cruiser as his wife didn't like vstrom style.
No centre stand (maybe negotiating item).
I am a solo rider and like to do some motocamping.
Dealer is willing to negotiate and I am going back over on Friday to talk and look at the bike closer.
I have never had a chain drive motorcycle (that concerns me) but from what I read and hear, its not a problem. Not mechanically inclined but I think I can
manage to learn cleaning and lubing the chain.
From what I have been reading on this site and internet search owners are very enthusiastic and happy with their choices.
Price wise I have heard two different versions. (1) In the ball park. (2) Overpriced. My idea is a fair price for both parties.
Looking forward to being on this forum.
Oh by the way tempis -20C feels like -30C (-22F)
