2011 v 2012

I have a 2011 650,29,000, son has 2012 650 35,000. today,just for a change we swapped bikes,as Im thinking of buying his,being the later model,as its due for trade in. We both thought our own bikes were better!! Guess I'll stay with the '11. never had any electrical probs with it,and I know the later ones are prone to them,read on one forum,UK rider had 3 looms under warranty.

I guess its like ur just used to ur bike and know it cause u had it for a while, and same for ur son.
I used to have a 2000 Honda CBR600 for a while and loved it, few months ago i sold it and got a 2006 CBR600RR which is light and has a slightly better engine, suspension, handling amd riding position, but for the first month or so i kept feeling the same, like my older bike was better, maybe just because i was so used to it.
