2012 VS 2014 Wee Strom

Hi guys,

I'm ready to pull the trigger, get rid of the Harley and get a wee Strom. The problem is, the dealer has given me a couple of options. Without too much explanation, I can get a 2012 Adventure brand new and another bike as an even trade. Or I can get a 2014 Adventure brand new and another bike for $1800. Are there enough changes (and what are they) to warrant getting the 2014 for $1800 more? I need to get back to the dealer this Friday (today is Weds) so any comments would be very appreciated... thanks guys

Jeff (by the way, I am in Akron, Oh and have tent space, garage and tools, and even a spare bedroom for overnighters if you are passing through this area)

Nothing has changed from 12 to 14 as far as I know. Except colors.

Have you thought about getting the base model and farkling it up yourself? You'll get better stuff that way. -al

No I'm blind enough that I saw Vee instead of Wee. Big changes in Vee, none in Wee. I nuked my confusing post... go for the 2012 Wee.

I like the gloss black of the 2012 adventure better than the grey of the 2013-4. Otherwise they are the same.
