Somebody pinch me

So as of three weeks ago I had a plan 2 more years of my 09 non abs Wee and then pick up a tri color Africa Twin. I had a near death experience and happen to see a good deal on a 12 Wee on Adv but it fell through. But it started me looking around and I found what I think might just be the best deal I've gotten in a long time. 2014 Glee with 8700 miles on it, bark busters, Outback Motortek crash bars and bash plate, center stand, pivot pegs, givi trekker top box, soft bag plate with a tool tube and the BEST part I think Cogent Dynamics full suspenison including the rear preload adjuster for $4k. Wish I could post pics here once I figure it out I'll try but holy crap I feel like a little kid at Christmas.

Congrats! That is great. He needed the space in his garage it seems. You will love the suspension upgrades, if in fact they have been made.

Now consider upgrading to 4 pot calipers in front and you are all set, super bargain super nice bike.

Have 4 pots on the 09, and he gave me all the old suspension so something's in there with a bunch of papwork from Cogent. He gave me a few oil filters, an air filter and all the old parts including the stock seat cause there is a Sargent on it now.

Speaking of 4 pots does anyone know if the calipers on the 14 will work on the 09? I see the adapters work for all years so I assume the calipers should swap over.

Sounds like you got good deal. The suspension upgrades alone should be worth their weight in gold.
