2006 Wee or 2003 V?
I know this is probably the 8765th thread of this nature, but given the specifics I thought I would post instead of lurking.
After 3 seasons on my first bike (Ninja 300), I've decided to move up in the world. I've test driven a bunch of new and used bikes, from cruisers to sport-tourers and have decided on the V-Strom. That said, I am on a budget with this purchase so I am looking at older bikes. I'm not looking to do any serious off-roading, but want the ability to go camping in areas where I might need to do some dirt/gravel roads or fire roads while travelling 1-up with my gear Here are the front-runners in my search:
2003 DL1000, 49,000 kms, colour matched panniers and top case. Needs tires. $3500 CAD
2006 DL650, 21,000 kms, no bags, no side racks. $3500 CAD
2009 DL650 32,000 kms, top box, side racks, no panniers. $4000 CAD
