    Yep, that is the exact one I'm favoring. A thing of beauty. At the moment no one here in my town has one to even touch. I've done a lot of reading - here and and elsewhere and I think the V-Strom is the strongest choice. Esp. given the easier availablility of parts/service etc on the Suzuki. The Piaggio/Vespa dealer here in town also handles Suzuki. I'll be hitting you guys up for advice and opinions on the accessories (i.e. luggage, gps etc) - I'm new to this style of riding but do a lot of commuting in my work in rural areas and the more I see the more I want to see it from a bike...

    Too bad you don't live closer, I know where a nice red 05 is at.

    is it new or used? Close is no problem - I had a 1982 Suzuki GS850L shipped from CT this summer - half the fun is arranging it...right? LOL.

    It is used, my local KTM, Ducati dealer took it in trade.
    I am surprised it is still there, been there about a month.

    I bet they would make a deal, it had 13k miles on it and looked great.
