New or Used???
Looking to buy a KLR and really stuggling with the decision due to the writeups on the 08 models. There are some really great deals on used bikes with some mods already done. But yet the 08 requires less mods to begin with. New bikes are nice but they don't stay new for long. Wondering if I go the used route if I will be disappointed that I did not take the decision further and just buy the new. $3K average for low mileage later model. $5K new and no doohickey to replace, better suspension, brakes, seat, fairing, little more power and probably more I forget. Probably spend $1200 on a stock 07 to reach equivalent of 08 model. I am looking for pros and cons of both from those in the know. This will not be my only motorcycle. I have a tour and sport bike as well so the KLR won't get a lot of miles. That is what leans me to the used side. That and I have to borrow most of the money I have about $1K saved toward the bike. And I know performance wise it will be a letdown- last dirt bikes were a KTM450 and a XR650R. I am now looking for a bike I can throw a some camping gear on and take off for the weekend. The KLR looks to be the best bike for the money. NEW or USED?????? opinions please
