I put myself in the same boat as you a few years ago and ended up buying a new one to get back what I lost. I could not find a used one and fell for the trick color and style of the 2011 the moment we opened the crate at the dealer. I spent my money on the new bike and love it but still would have liked to buy used and save some money if one was available and not beat up. I just hit craigslist Kenosha-Racine, WI and found a dozen KLR's privately listed in this area.
