Might be returning to the Wee
In April of 2014, I traded my '08 Wee and my '98 Valkyrie in on a Gold Wing F6B. The F6B has suited me well, but now at the ripe age of 75 I find that an 840 lb bike ain't all that much fun to wrestle around. I really liked the Wee and should have kept it. In checking local(somewhat)dealers' inventories, I have located 3 Wees that interest me.
Dealer #1 has a 2020 listed for $8799 and a 2019 XT Tour for $9999. He had the 2019 listed for the same as the 2020 for a short time, but that promotion has ended.
Dealer #2 has a new 2017 priced at $6749.
My question to you guys in the know: Is there any appreciable mechanical difference between the 2017 Wee and the 2019 or 2020?
I think maybe dealer #1 may deal on the XT Tour even though the promotion has ended. I like the color(red) on this one but not excited about the spoked wheels.
The 2017 at dealer #2 peaks my interest because it it 2 - 3 grand less, but only if it is mechanically the same as the 2019 and 2020. I'm not crazy about the color either(white) but could probably learn to overlook that.
I'm not going to be buying right now as it has turned Winter here in Indiana, but a road trip in the cage might be in order to check out these bikes. Anything you can tell me about how these 3 bikes stack up would be much appreciated.
I live in my own little world, but it's OK, they know me here.
