If you're willing to do a Fly and Ride... Mine is for sale in Nova Scotia!
As far as the DL1000s go, many years experience a stumble at around the 3600 rpm mark. Various fixes include PowerCommanders or reflashing the ECU.
There is also a clutch chudder, but apparently it causes no problems an many just live with it. The fix is to replace the clutch basket.
Many have gotten 150,000 miles + from their DLs with proper care and maintenance.
The drive trains are fairly rock solid. Chains and Sprokets are consumables, so you will replace them.
The DL1000s are relatively unchanged through the years. I've put over 50,000km on mine in just over two years - I've changed oil, flashed the ECU, done the chain and sprockets and replaced the brake pads.
If you ARE interested, check my ad in the Canadian Flea Market - I'd be willing to cut a pretty good deal for a fellow Inmate.
