Okay these are just my opinions. Given the choice between a 2007 or a 2008 I would take the 2007 every day of the week. Ya they made some improvements on the bike but for me the biggest issue is the oil usage on the 2008's. There are a bunch of them for sale around my area and I've caught a few sellers tripping over their tongues when asked about oil consumption. I'd rather have an older bike that didn't consume oil at the rate the new ones do.
