from KLR to used Wee?

Hello esteemed Wee-Strom riders.

I hope to trade up from my '04 KLR650 to a used Wee. My question is this: were the early years ('04-'06) still a great bike? Or do the upgrades from '07 onward make it worth forking out that much more for a newer machine?

I'd like to think I could trade the KLR (5k miles) for a Wee (up to 20k miles), plus a couple grand thrown into the deal. Unrealistic?

At least one thing's sure: I'll know how to farkle the Wee when the deal's done.

I've owned an 05 and an 09. Unless you want ABS, the earlier models are just as good.
