To Adventure or not 2 Adventure

Why would I want to swap my:

Standard '02 GS, ABS, heated grips, shagged tyres with 4kmiles for,

Adventure '02 GS, ABS, heated grips, newish tyres with 1k miles?

Dealer wants balance of ~£1200. I'm thinking tyres £180, mine needs service soon £250(?). Adventure has got black engine and looks much better than mine in my opinion. Taller suspension not a problem.
 
how do I know...

Depends wether you intend on owning a two wheeler silver christmas tree covered with every concivable needless gadget (tart's handbag)
Or use the bike as a road hauler with dirt track capability (all rounder)

I don't own either but consensus seems to be adventure better off foad, lower gearing more g/clearence etc. and the standard better on road.
 
If you like the looks of the Adventure that much more, go for it.
 
You KNOW you're going to buy it!

After all you've already argued the cost of changing down from £1200 to £770...

You'll always get moral support from this forum on spending money :beerjug:
