Hi guys, Ive got a decision to make in the coming weeks. Whether to buy a Wee-strom or a Beamer. I have done my due diligence in searching this forum and the internet, and have found a whopping 2 threads, the most helpful of which is 8 years old :) The dilemma is this: A used BMW 1100/1150/1200 that is 8-10 years old and has 40-60k miles cost the same as a brand new Weestrom with comparable farkles. Heres my history: Last summer I bought an '02 Vee and rode it for a month before a minivan ran a stop sign and turned left... From the moment I got on the Vee, I decided that was the bike for me. My first bike was an old shaft drive Suzuki GS650. My next bike must have ABS, and be the kind of bike that can handle a 85/15 on/offroad mix. My brain is telling me to buy a used Wee (searching, but not finding something I want to jump on) and let that be it. But I want to be riding soon, and everything I'm seeing are used BMW's for 10-13k, or non ABS Stroms, so I might as well buy a new one and another 2-3k on farkles. Im familiar with the Wee's lack of problems and maintenance, but what are the concerns coming from BMW's side? I've heard of final drive issues, but mostly from a Strom bias. I also loved the power of the Vee, and know that the BMW gets me closer to that than the Wee. Also, what would be the re-sale in another 5 years give or take. New depreciation on the Wee should hit harder than a used bike, but I don't know to what extent or if even true. I would love to discuss the pros/cons of both lines of bikes and what is going to be the most reasonable/enjoyable next bike experience. Thank you in advance for your help.
