May be getting a Wee

My son now has my DL1000 and is really enjoying it. When I parted with it I had resolved to quit riding after almost 50 years on two wheels.

The bug is biting again and I am looking at a couple of Wee's, one a new Adventure and the other a very nicely farkled, low mileage 2011.

The 2013 Adventure comes with very nice Suzuki bags and little else while the 2011, about 4,000 less has a centerstand, SW Motech skid plate, fork brace, mirror offsets, Madstad windscreen mount and aftermarket screen, hand guards and a few other items that I can't recall off hand.

Does anyone know of any issues with the 2011?

No issues that I've heard of. Looks like you are getting some nice farkles, too. Unless you have a desire for the new stlye, I'd have a go at the 2011.

I agree. For $4000 less definitely 2011 for me.

For 4K less get the 2011. The new model is better, but not that much!

Me I would go for the 2011 over the 13'.But it really only matters which one you want.Are they both at a dealer or is the used private seller? used you save more with taxes.

Congratulations on the purchase! I love my '11. Runs and feels just as nice as the Beemers that preceded it.
