talk to me about 2005 wee/dl650 w/4k miles

after 35+ years, i'm a returning rider.

in july 2012, i bought a craigslist kawasaki 2006 z750s (z1000 baby brother) that had 11k.

i've ridden for just about 6 months and have put on about 3k miles.

i live in the northeast, work full-time, and have two kids in college-i'm busy and i'm glad i get to ride as often has i have.

but... eyes have strayed.

yup, i looked around and found an original owner who had 1/2 dozen bikes which he is selling off as he is retiring from riding.

one in the stable is:

2005 dl650 red with only 4325 miles.

original owner installed MadStad adjustable windshield mount, SW-Motech Crashbar-Engine guard, and a SW-Motech Centerstand.

the bike is not pristine-several paint nicks on the gas tank and front fender.

i'm looking for thoughts on the 2005 model.

or should i wait for a newer year-2008? or 2010?

i'm not sure a need another bike.

but i am smitten.

any and all thoughts are appreciated.

be well.
