I am not sure about your area, but here in Ky. the dealers can't keep any in stock and our local dealer won't be able to get anymore KLR's till the 09 models are brought out for dealer preview in September. Try doing a search on Craigslist.com. There are sometimes great buys on some 08's there. Also Keep an eye posted on EBay.
By the way, your husband is one lucky man! That would be an great birthday gift. Keep us posted and have him send us some pics of his birthday present if you are able to get one for him.
2008 DL650 VStrom Yellow and Black
Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
