I picked up a 2008 (gen 2) last July. I've added 9,000 miles to the 7,000 it had when I picked her up. I enjoy her immensely. Mostly road, but I've ventured off road when the opportunity presented itself. It's nice to know I can.
2008 and 2009 are notorious for burning oil, and mine burns oil. When I keep her below 5,000 rpm, she doesn't burn much. The other day I rode 250 miles and ran 80+ mph the last 75. She burned an entire quart in that trip. Mostly, I just add oil without worrying about it. Occasionally, I consider upgrading the poor girl to a 685. She runs good, so I'm not in a hurry to spend the extra money.
Get one and go riding! I'll bet there are lots of great back roads in your part of the country!
