Newer wee w/ extras vs cheaper stock wee
I'm looking at 2 different wees and would like some input on how to put a price on extras/farkles. Both bikes have ABS and have similar mileage (<4K).
The newer wee has aftermarket windshield, oem saddlebags, center stand, engine guards, hand guards.
The other wee is 2 years older but $1500 less with about a year left on an extended warranty.
I am going to eventually buy hard saddlebags, but have some soft ones to use in the meantime so I don't put much value on the oem ones especially since I haven't read many good things about them here. Does the oem rack work with the HB Journey bags? If so, then that's a couple hundred there. I could potentially sell the oem bags/rack, and they're better than nothing so maybe $200.
Definitely would buy engine guards and most likely a center stand based upon other threads I've read so that's about $450 for both of those.
I already have a set of oem DL handguards that I used on my SV that I sold so no added value for that.
I'm 5'6" so don't know if I would be experiencing the buffeting issue (thoughts?) commonly mentioned. If I did, I would look into the madstad bracket that is mentioned so I would put a value of $100 on the aftermarket windshield.
Even though one is newer, I'm not sure if that equates to a difference in value since they have similar mileage and the other one has an extended warranty. Thoughts?
So by my simplistic calculations, the extras are valued ~$800, which doesn't come close to the $1,500 difference in price, but there is something to be said for the savings in time of having to install those parts. I'm leaning towards the older one, but wanted a sanity check from those who actually own wees/vees to see if I'm overlooking something or may need to look at this from a different perspective. Thanks from someone who hopes to join the "owners" group soon.
