Up for sale is my 2005 Suzuki DR650, asking $2750. Bike is very clean, and everything is up to date, tires are fresh, newer oil change, inspection is current, and clean and clear title in hand, located in Southwest PA. Might consider trades on a TW200 also.

The bike has a bunch of tasteful upgrades, and was all well cared for:

-OEM Suzuki Rear Rack
-Corbin Seat (huge upgrade over stock)
-LED Headlight
-Alloy Skidplate with side case covers
-Wide Footpeg kit
-Yoshimura Exhaust
-DRZ400 Taillight kit
-LED Rear Turn Signals
-K&N Air Filter
-Top Gun Stiffer Shock Spring
-Renthal Handlebars & Grips
-Tusk Full Wrap Around Handguards
-Dual keyed USB chargers
-New X-Ring chain and sprocket set

As you can see, the bike is in great shape, and I am very ocd about my bikes and the maintenance, oil, other fluids and hardwar that goes into them. You will not find any home depot or lowes hardware on the bike, nor will you find any corroded hardware. If you come and see it, you will not be disappointed. No gimmicks, no games, just a clean, great running motorcycle here.

The bike has 13k miles on it, and that will change daily as I still am riding the bike.

Very nice DR. I think you will be able to sell on c/l very easily???? Your price seems very close to bargain sale price. No??? Or is mileage an issue on these. I think for me, 400cc's is about max for trail riding. Now fire roads,,,,,, Well, I don't have any fire roads around here that I know of.

Yeah, I miss the tw for sure. I loved that little bike. I have my eye on 2 of them up here, but would trade for a tw if it was as nice as my dr. Its great for fireroads, and trail riding, but when we are really getting at it, it is handful weight wise when I make a mistake. Power delivery on it pretty great. But being honest with myself, I mostly ride local, and on the trails around here, so a tw really fits the bill for me. I think the price is a bargain, the mileage some might say is high, but on the DR's its really just breaking in, guys have 50-60k on the original engines, and I have heard of way more. Plus, as you can tell, this one is most road ridden, so it hasent been abused.

I'm actually considering getting rid of my TW for a DR650. If you were closer to me, I would be stopping by. One question though, I do really like my TW, just that most of my riding is on the street with a bit of highway on the commutes. I just "need" a bit more power. I'm on the DR idea because from a street bike perspective it's about as light and pothole proof as they get. I'm hesitant though. Reading these posts make me even more hesitant, but I think you guys are mostly referencing tight off road stuff, right?

Yes, you are totally on the right track with your thinking. The DR650 is pretty awesome. I does a great reliability record, and its pretty bombproof. I do ride mine in the woods, and the motor is great and track-able. You do notice the weight in the super tight stuff though. Pipeline and powerline runs here in PA are aweome, and the single track is awesome too until it gets real real wet and slick on the rocks and roots, thats when you notice the weight. What part of MD are you from? I would not be opposed to running down and meeting up with you. Heck if nothing else that would be a nice ride, and you could try one out. What year is your Tdub?

It's a 2010, with just under 17,000 miles on it. Still riding it every day. It's well maintained but it is definitely well used. I love the little beast, I just wish it had about double the HP. It would be perfect then. Location, just north of Baltimore, a long way from Beaver, PA.

I bought the TW because I needed a good city bike, (crappy roads) that could venture off road, and liked those fat tires. Unfortunately The People's Republic of Maryland, is a no fun state, and there are absolutely zero "legal" free off-road places to ride near me. So I find myself on the street almost all of the time.

As for another bike, I still have to talk the wife into it. She OK with the whole motorcycle thing, but doesn't quite understand the "need another bike," thing. I told her, hey, it's like your shoes. Apparently her shoes don't cost as much as my motorcycles have, even when we add them all up, so I need to come up with another logical comparison.

Funny post. I have a TW (first bike ever). Wife didn't like it but said...We'll its mostly on the dirt so OK. Then I would commute on it a bit and really wanted a bit more umph. Its nice to twist the wrist and get out of a cars blind spot or when at a light get a bit ahead of the following cars. Well fast fwd a year.

Another member posted a '07 DR650. I knew it was gonna be in great shape. I went and took a look and hoped I'd hate it. I took it for a a ride and 2nd gear was all I needed to say I will take it. The Mrs said now you are going to ride twice as much. I said no I can only ride one at a time. The TW is perfect for the dirt riding I do. I am in CA and there is NO way you have less places to ride dirt that I do :) CA is the definition of the Nanny state. In the end selling the TW will only net you a few grand. Given how hard they are to find used so it would suck to regret the sale. Keep if for dirt and meet up and putting around the city. I still do on mine. The DR is better for street and fire roads. And in my mind safer (more power, taller profile = more viability). In the end both bikes are fairly cheap used. Do your best to hold on to both. The TW would be piece of cake to sell if needed (kids, women, new riders, and us smart old guys).

Thanks for the advice, and yes, part of my upgrade aversion is that I really like the TW, and know that I will miss it.
