Finally have one! New 08 in my garage.
I sold my 2008 600RR late last year after laying it down. It didn't hurt my feelings much because I hated it. I should have kept my VFR. Anyways, the decision I had to make was either a Versys, DR650 or the KLR. I owned a 1986 KLR that I purchased new and remember how much fun it was to ride. Since than I've owned many sport bikes but they've never really been much fun. I know if I'd have purchased a thumper, I probably would have regretted not spending a little more and purchase the Versys. The ride home was great! I'm sure I made the right decision. The dealer I purchased it from in Iowa also sells cars. The bike had exactly 1 mile on it. I low balled them with a $5000 offer. We agreed to $5500 which was $200 below cost. No extra fees. I did purchase the Kawasaki 2 year extended service agreement for $370. They we're nice people and very helpful. BTW, I do believe they had 1 left if anyone's interested.
