Smile Thinking about buying a 2009 DL1000

Hello all - I just joined the site. I live in Newark, DE and commute 110 mile round trip to work each day. Try to ride through the winter, but some days common sense (My wife) prevails and I drive the cage. I stopped by L&D Suzuki in Dover this morning to check out a 2009 DL1000 (black). I can purchase for $9,500 out the door. I recently sold my 2006 ST1300, great bike but way too hot in the summertime. Any thoughts/comments greatly appreciated.

Thumbs up VStrom was a great commuter in Wash DC

I have a 2007 V-1000 and though my commute was only 20 miles into the Pentagon, the bike did great at 75-80 in the HOV lane.
