Just joined, looking at a 99 KLR, 6500 mi, $1250

Hey all,
I have been a dual sport fan for a long time, but havent owned one in many years. Just yesterday I found a local bike for sale, that I am interested in. Here are the details:

1999 KLR 650
6500 miles
one owner
comes with street treads, and original semi knobby tires
comes with smoked, taller windscreen
comes with soft tank bag
comes with soft saddle bags
comes with soft bag on luggage rack
new battery just a few weeks ago

Bike seems to be stock otherwise. The guy is in his late 50s, bought the bike new. His kid took it one day, and let someone else ride it, and dumped it promptly. The bike hit a wall at low speed, but scuffed the fairing right next to the headlight, and the side of the plastic fairing. He had one of the front forks replaced, and says it rides fine now. I didnt ride it yesterday, but would guess that this is a really good price, correct? What do you guys think, and what should I look for/ask on this particular bike?

thanks,
Jeff

Snag it!! It's a good price and FAR from worn out..
Also remember that it's the exact same bike as a 2007, other than color..

Buy it, and welcome!!

Sorry guys....I waited too long. Guy sold the bike today, before I got off work. He said he would hold it for me last night, with no $$ until today, but I didnt do it.....screwed up!

Thanks for the responses....now I know!
