My buddies and I leave on a trip in a month rules are simple 1. Bike is older than you 2. bike is under $1000. Aside from that, I bought my 2006 Vstrom 650 for $2400. Deals are out there... $2500 isn't even a challenge. If you look at my signature line, the only bikes over $2500 were my VFR800, DL1000, 2008 DL650($2950), and FJR1300.
