move from Tenere to Wee
I'm strongly considering moving from my Tenere to a Wee. I know many of you will have big opinions one way or the other... but I'm seeking some wise guidance.
A little history... I'm 48 yr olds, been riding since I was 5 or so. Grew up riding dirt and dual sport and owned many and current DS is a 2012 DR650. Didnt really get into street riding till about 6 years ago although ive ridden my brothers bikes alot. 1st street bike was a Versys. Loved the bike for highway twisties, but never took it off road. Kids got old enough to ride with me and really like it so decided to sell the Versys and got the Tenere for more comfort, safety and thinking of going longer distances. Was a stretch $$ wise but I pulled it off.
Well, now with some additional debts coming along and finding myself not riding the Tenere as much as I should, mainly riding my DR on DS rides, I'm looking at less expensive alternatives that I wont feel quite as guilty about it sitting idle and lessons some expenses like gas, insurance etc...
Since I enjoyed the Versys so much, I'm thinking the Wee may be just the ticket. I'm past the power hungry stage so not all that concerned with the loss in power. My thoughts are the Wee will be better for 2 up wth my kids and some light offroad duty but still be a nice twisty ride as well.
So what ya say? I know many may think Im crazy as I know some long for a S10, but I think for now, this may be the smart move for me...at least for another 5 or so years till my kids are out of the house.
So what advise can you give me? Think its a mistake? Will i regret the move? Would a dealer really screw me over if I tried to trade? Better Options to sell outright and get a nice used Wee, or find an inmate to trade with? Give me some thoughts. Im not at the point where the $$ is an emergency, but the diff in $ would be welcome right now.
