There has been heaps spent on the bike
Mechanically the bike is in excellent condition. It has been ridden offroad and laid down a few times, so there are some scratches. Has 22,000 miles
Bike is registered in Oregon but is currently in Patzucauro, Mexico, can either fly down and ride her back or I could ride her to you
chasing $8000ono for her
Might be persuaded to include Klim Helmet and gloves
That is a SERIOUSLY farkled bike. If I didn't already have a bike prepped for a planned 2012 RTW departure, wasn't traveling with 2 other people, and you weren't in Mexico... I might have been the one to buy that bike! I hope your sale goes well.
We're all going to putz around the world on our Dr650's. Bought for the trip, used but all in excellent condition. Being that there are 3 of us, we all had to come to a decision. It was simple enough, nothing extravagant, nothing too expensive. Dr650 came out on top. Mexico sounds nice. No clouds eh?
