Default 06 or newer jackpot? Help

Thoughts on the best year jackpot to purchase? The reason I ask is a guy close to me has an 06 jackpot with 7,000 miles for sale asking $10,500. Through all my looking I've done I can buy a 11 or 12 for the same price similar miles. His has a few mods including aftermarket handlebars, s&s Intake, platinum bleed ride suspension, 4" forward controls, custom front fender, aftermarket exhaust, cam covers, cheese wedges, luggage rack and backrest. He's telling me $4,000 in addons. Is this bike worth it or is a newer model with 106 the way to go? I really like the look of this 06. Let me know any thoughts..

What we think really doesn't matter. If you like it and are happy with the price then buy it.

he wants to recover the coast of the extra parts he put on it.
What do you think. There is a lot of 06 out there with some extras
if you can afford a 11 or 12 do it when you go to sell it you'll get more then you would on a 06

The question is, are those mods worth it to you?

If this is it I would say No.
It will lower your bike to nothing and a push of a button it will raise it.
You'll get a somewhat smooth ride on good roads. But if you ride back roads and into the countryside you're going to get a harsh ride.
The stock shock would give you a smoother ride in my opinion

Regardless of the mods, it's still an '06.
