Might be a new versys owner

Hi I was thinking about Getting a new versys or dr650.But all of my area dealers want $8000+ otd. which seems high after reading that many people got them for $6800 OTD?
Luck would have it ,theres a 2008 used versys with 1800 miles for $5800 from a private owner with 5 year warranty.Should I jump on it?
I have 38 years of offroad experience,but very little road.The dr650 has a feel that Iam used to.But I will be useing this bike for commutes and general riding ,99% on road.
So I think the Versys will fit the bill better.Any comments ?

Being an old dirt guy myself I can say the Versys will fit you and make you happy. It is the best combination of dirt bike feel and excellent road manners that I have ever ridden and I have owned many (23) bikes.

I see you are getting the blue! I was going to wait for the 2009 just to get the blue, but I got a good deal on a 2008 - $6250 OTD. I just couldn't pass that up.

Top Saddlery

Hi -

I read a lot of very positive comments over the years, particularly from sport biker riders, about Top Saddlery's custom seats.

A quick Web serach will turn up some reviews.

I'm planning on ordering a seat and tank cover for my '89 Transalp this winter (delivery time is 4-8 weeks).

- Scott

A custom seat would cost over 600.00 plus shipping. They look nice but not that nice.
