DL 650 is a reliable bike. Look it up. This bike has been well-maintained and runs well.
It has been a joy to ride. Very easy to ride smoothly in traffic, and feels the same at 130kmh as it does at 80.
Big windscreen keeps wind and bugs off; you can have your visor open to about 90 before the bees cease to deflect enough. Ask me how I know.
Easy to ride and stable on smooth gravel roads, but best on the pavement, where it is super-comfy. Milady says being a passenger is very comfortable, and it's easy to drive the bike with a passenger.
My 32" inseam lets me juuust flat-foot the bike.
Excellent commuter with the high riding position, and could be good as a first bike for the right person. It's no racer, but has more scoot than I ever used.
I'm only selling it because I bought a new motorcycle.

Price is somewhat negotiable. Test ride possible with cash in hand and valid class 6 DL.

Givi top box (fits one FF helmet, lunch, and raingear).
Givi hard panniers with ugly but visible stickers. All luggage locks, and is removable.
Real frame-mounted Givi full engine guards.
Skid plate and center stand.
Heated grips with two settings: 'just warm enough' and 'toasty'.
Big tall windscreen (no idea what it is); I also have the OEM screen.
Barkbusters Storm handguards (the strong aluminum ones).
Auxiliary LED driving lights (Be Seen!).
And the party piece: the same LED lights as the front, but with red lenses, and switched with the brake light. Very bright but no dazzle.
Fuse block underseat.
Tool tube on the port side.
2 full key sets, service manual, and some oil.
Tires are maybe 1/2 worn?

Wow, long ad...ah well.

New OEM fuel pump 8k ago (original lasted 68k).
Main forward harness plug and connectors overhauled 1 yr. ago.

Service/timely replacement:
New OEM ignition switch (3yr ago).
New throttle and clutch cables (6 mos.).
New OEM clutch lever (6 mos.), and new OEM side stand (2yr). Both were wobbly.
Oil and filter change every 5 to 5.5k. I use Honda GN4.
Switch gear L and R cleaned and greased this spring.
Valves last checked at 68k (next due at 88-92k).
Brake pads front and rear at 71k.

Cosmetics are not perfect, but the bike looks good.
Runs like a top.
