I will say that the DRZ appeals to the miser in me. I would love, just absolutely, love to go to Costa Mesa and ride out with a 500. At my age, I look at it like this, getting that 500 is like having a relationship with a really hot woman, damn it is exciting to ride, but how much will it cost me?

To get one set-up nice will cost around 12k. If I ride 100x, that is $120 a ride, not counting gas, oil, filters, chain/sprocket and all the other shit. I bought my DRZ for $2500, I ride it 100x (I think I have ridden it more lol) and that is $25 a ride. Cost goes down with more rides and longer ownership. Plus, you get the re-sale $$$, if any. That 12k bike in 4 years will sell for 7k. In 4 years the $2500 DRZ will probably still sell for $2500, unless I ride it and then it's damn near worthless.
You said it, buy used. Cost per mile/hour is much less. I've put 7000 miles/300 hours on my 04' 525. Paid $3500 three years ago,still worth what I paid or close...do the math, right now I'm @ $2.00 per mile if I gave the bike away.if I sold it that cost drops to $0.
Triple the cost for a new 500, plus all the add ons you will need.

Plus you won't get the RFS motor, which you can buy parts for at very low prices on Ebay and CL.
