To trade-in or not to Trade-in
So today I was out looking for rain gear, stopped by one of the BMW/Triumph dealers. Sitting out front, they have a '10 F650/800 (apparently for a couple of years, BMW was building bikes with 800cc engines but calling them 650's). The bike is a dark blue, 11,000 +/- miles, loaded, tires are 3/4 tread, trunk, panniers, driving lights, ready to roll. Dealer wants $9,600, said they might go $5,500 trade-in for the Versys. Wife and I are having some long talks on this.
Upside, bike is loaded, would only have to maintain it
Downside, not crazy about the panniers on it, would probably swap them out for HT style.
Also, I've got new tires, rear sprocker, and SS brake lines being installed this weekend, which would actually improve my resale/trade-in value, I've also got a bunch of other farkles on the way or in the garage waiting install, I guess I can return them.
