My wife and I are wanting a V-strom. I rode dirt bikes years ago so I'm not completely inexperienced but have never been around street bikes. We are outdoors people and like the dual sport aspects of the V-strom and it's competitors but after doing the reasearch (mostly on-line and this site) we want a wee strom. We've found a used 2009 DL650 model with some warranty left for $5500. It's strictly stock, no mods or accessories. Our local Suzuki dealer has quoted a new one for basically list price at $7499. The guy says he is selling it because he is picking up one with ABS today and doesn't need two bikes. Being that he is selling one that is less than a year old for $2 grand off of a new one, have we stumbled onto a great deal or is there something we should be leary of? I haven't looked at the bike yet so what are some things I should look for to make sure it's all he says it is?
Thanks for any help.
