    Ok, cheaper than a cell bill, but it's still a DR.

    Not just a dr, but the fastest dr I've ever come across. Best fire roader around.

    You are really better off buying a well maintained & farkled late model used one then new. Bikes don't hold their value and unless you plan on keeping it forever it's a money loser. If financing is your concern hit up a credit union.

    OTD is a good baseline. If you would like to broaden your search than you can look in my area (Orange County) and I will haul it to Prescott for you and you can pick it up there. I am in the process of buying a house and will be making multiple trips over the next few months. Even if you get new at the OTD place I could haul it back for you. Not going to be free, but cheaper than freight. Open rear of Toyota Tacoma.
    No problem!

    Just giving you an option...

    Hey Sean, Have you ever rode an LC4? That's the 650 to buy hands down.

    No never rode one. Nice looking bikes but I'm not to good at head work.

    Had a ktm once when I was 17. 92 300 dxc. Wanted a newer one but when they changed to butterscotch I swore never!!

    To answer one of the original questions, I would do Apache over Ride Now anyday. I just don't like the Ridenow places. I go there to look, not to buy.

    If you were to consider a KLR650, I'd suggest North Valley Honda, nice people there.

    I'll keep looking for used.

    I do tend to keep thing forever. My car is a 2001 Toyota Camry with 225,000+ miles on it. I would rather keep driving it and buy a bike then buy a new car or truck.
