Default Bike longevity

I recently posted in a thread about bearings and got a reply reminding me that my bike is an '01. I got it in '06, and it was barely touched, but it's an '01!
When I first got a Husky, then moved on to Gas Gas I noticed that over a couple year period, I didn't have the peer pressure to upgrade to the next model year. It seems that no matter the year, if you keep a Gas Gas looking good, nobody realizes that you're on a non current bike. As far as performance goes, I really don't think I'm giving anything up. It's probably 20 pounds heavier than my brother in law's 2008 KTM, but I don't think I'd trade him.
