Almost got a 650LT

There were 2 650 LTs on my local craigslist and I made serious enquiries on both. Both seemed like great deals. Low mileage 2017s. Needless to say, both sellers then had a change of mind and decided to keep them 😞😞😞.

One was going to add a bash plate and knobbies for off road use (instead of buying an African twin). No idea why the other changed their mind.

Ive also looked a some new LTs on CycleTrader, but of course the price you see is NOT the price you pay. The common theme here is that it jumps by about $1,500 once they add on the deal prep, delivery and all the other bits, so the GT Ray deal thats advertised is definitely NOT as advertised.

The hunt continues. Meantime, still riding the old faithful FZ6.

Where are you located so we can keep an eye out for something for you. How far would you travel to get a good one? There are a couple nice listings on this forum right now. Good Luck.

Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!

What do you consider as "low-miles"?

[Altho' it's NOT for sale, my '08 has 84,4xx well-maintained miles on it, and I figure it has AT LEAST the same amount left in it....]

I can confirm from a recent bike swap while out for a ride that it indeed runs well. My '15 has about 54k miles on it.

Yeah, if you want true ram air tuning, you better be willing to ram some air! (SteveinSunnyFlorida)

'15 KLE650LT
'99 Concours(with 234,xxx miles on it), sold
'98 KLR650
