I understand what you are thinking. I am in a different situation that is causing me to think about parting ways with the Wee. I have 2 bikes, the '08 Matte Black Wee and a '98 Honda Valkyrie. My initial thought when I bought the Wee was to sell the Valkyrie. Well, I just couldn't part with it since I bought it new and have put every one of the 94,000 miles on it. So I ended up with 2 bikes.
Now I am thinking that I want to get back to owning just one bike but am not sure how to do it. Do I sell one of the 2 I now have & keep the other? Or do I get rid of them both and buy something entirely different. If one or both of my bikes were problematic, it would make the decision easy. But I have what I think are two of the most reliable motorcycles on the road.
If I sold them both & went for another bike, I think I would take a very hard look at the Triumph Tiger(the 1050) but I'm not sure what their reliability history is. On the other hand, I have wanted a BMW R1200R for quite some time but have not been able to "pull the trigger" on one due to BMW issues. I would think maybe they are getting things ironed out by now.
Anyway, good luck in your decision. You do have a great bike. I think I would keep it and put it on a Deltran Battery Tender, add fresh fuel with Stabil, and ride it when you are able. I was never able to understand why guys get rid of their bikes because a baby is on the way. We had 3, the youngest is now 35, and it never presented a problem for us.
I live in my own little world, but it's OK, they know me here.
