I am about to put a DL1000, ready for touring, on sale once I get it MOT’d on 16th March.

Looking for ~£3000 :
2003, Dark blue,
heated grips
aftermarket larger screen
metal ‘crash’ bars around fairing
Full luggage consisting of :
- 50L plastic Kappa top box
- 2 new SW Motech Trax 45L aluminium side panniers (were £600 with connections and locks - only used one weekend as originals from an early batch were replaced under warranty).

24,000 miles but mostly on motorway commuting and the odd weekend around Scotland.
Very good condition, not used during winter but regularly started and run

Owned for 2 years since around 11000 miles, and dealer maintained by Saltire Suzuki in Edinburgh. 1st bike so not thrashed at all – very tamely used around Scotland and while out with other Horizon’s folks.

Could throw in chain (~ £60?), alarmed disc lock (~£80) and cover so it’s good to go…. if you give me a decent price :-)

Reluctant sale – going travelling but unfortunately without the bike.

Based in Edinburgh, Scotland…..booked for MOT on 16th March, must sell by mid April.

Can get recent photos for anyone interested.

For the original poster – can get train up from London to Edinburgh in 4.5hours if you get the right one, or cheap ‘megabus’ – would need to check on prices…..and you couldn’t get a better place to start off your Euro tour :-)

Email through profile. I have one local person interested but I'm chasing them up just now.
