Long story short, I'm on a round-the-US road trip on my 08 KLR650, and before I left, I apparently left out a sprocket-side rear wheel spacer when I put on a new tire. The bike made it about 3500...

That IS a great deal. I paid $3600 for mine about four months ago, an 08 with 8k miles on it, but no panniers, and IT was a good deal. Those panniers are expensive! I'd jump on it.
