DR650: Bought from my brother. I knew it's history from new, and I bought it anyway. My KLR was stolen a few months prior, and I missed the versatility. Street 500: Wanted something to commute on that wouldn't eat rear tires like candy, that was more comfortable. I considered the RE Classic and Bullet 500, but didn't think they would hold up well for a daily 80 mile round trip, mostly highway. I didn't really need it, but I had some money saved, some things paid off, and wanted to get something to ride. I looked at a few other bikes, many from shops that didn't seem too interesting in selling them. Went to look at this bike out of boredom. Turned out to be quiet, smooth, water cooled, and even nimble.
