    Lee, is the cammo pattern painted on or is it a vinyl wrap?

    I have a 06 Patrol, with 20k on it. This one has been updated with functional items, this does not go on interstates and is a good performance for what it is. If you need to ride fast, use your K bike.
    Mine cost 9800 in 06 and the new efi units are 17k.

    Wow, I just noticed this is a really old post, I guess I'll bring it back!

    I have a 2012 Patrol T. It is a lot of fun, but if you get one without knowing the limitations you'll be disappointed. It's way underpowered and you have to keep up on things.
    Around here there are a lot more gravel/dirt roads than paved roads, and it's perfect for that.

    If I hop on the interstate for a 50 mile trip, it sucks. If I go to the same place taking the back roads it's a blast, and I end up discovering neat things (roads, places, scenery) that I never knew existed. I rode it to work a couple of weeks ago when we got a foot of heavy wet snow, laughing all the way!

    I have to keep up on minor (so far!) maintenance and I can't accelerate up a hill, or into a headwind, but it is fun.
    I hear the fuel injected ones have a bit more power so that would be a plus.
