Input Needed on Possible V-Strom Purchase
I have an FJR1300. It is absolutely, in my opinion, an astounding motorcycle. I am, however, considering replacing it with a V-Strom 650. Most of my riding is commuting around town with a 500 mile round trip about twice a year. I can only own one at a time; so, after all of the years of gaining interest in V-Stroms, I "may" take the plunge. I have two questions.
1) Other than the normal things for which one looks when buying a used motorcycle, are there any "V-Strom specific" things for which I should look?
2) Unfortunately, being in Montana, these don't abound. Further unfortunately, the two I'm considering are both at dealers. Rats! Having said that, here are the two I am considering. For the money they are asking, which would you choose and why?
Bike 1) (This bike has no cases/bags)
2014 Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS
$4,995 Sale Price, was $5995
Color:Pearl Bracing White
Bike 2) This bike does have the Adventure cases
2014 Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS Adventure
Color:Metallic Thunder Gray
Input on both questions would be greatly appreciated. Both of these dealers are out of town and I will be traveling for military reasons this week and should be looking at and driving both on Friday.
