My wife is letting me move up a class from my 150cc Aprilia scooter to a bigger boy bike and I've always had my eyes on the F650. Now my bike friends are telling me to skip the thumper and look for a 2009+ as it will generally be a better ride. I will be commuting on this bike with great regularity. I am only 6 miles, city streets from the office, so nothing crazy there. But that will be bulk of the trips. I'd like to take it out for longer cruises to the hill country (central TX) and out to a few camping spots I like. Very limited 2up in town, but hopefully some fun 2up out on the country roads. So first thing, sound about right for the twin F650? So second, as I am looking I obviously have noticed the lesser availability of these used. Is there a mileage number to not look above? I am seeing Fleamarket $ in the 6,500-7k range but seeing them at dealers in the 8-9k range. How much is a reasonable amount to offer below asking at a dealer? I'm going to have to borrow about $4k, so need to go with a dealer since I'm not sure how to do a loan on a person to person sale. Extended warranty on a 2009 with say 15k-25k miles? While ideally I would like to put 5-10k/yr on it will I actually get anything out of the extra coverage? Lastly what should I look for, with boots on the ground, at a used bike from a dealer? Thanks guys, looking forward to a lot of great adventures.
