I'm a pretty new rider and looking at the TW. The only place close by has 4 of them. 2014 @ $5000+, 2013 @ $4000 (MSR class bike that was never used), 2013 @$3600 (MSR class bike with 200mi, slight scarring on headlight fairing), 2008 @ $2900+ (comes with front and rear rack already installed, 1800mi). Having read quite a bit of info, i know the bike has changed pretty much not at all since 2001. I am leaning towards the 2008, since there really is no difference other than age and it come with the racks already installed, even though I originally wanted the 2014 in blue. Not that color really makes a difference knowing in the end I can make it any color I want.
