Immediate help needed! 08 or 09?!?
(bikes are new)
I am in desperate need of opinions because I am buying the bike tommorrow or maybe Monday. I originally was trying as hard as I could to find a red 08, but to no avail. I have now warmed up to the black and the red/black 09, but also found a red 08. Anyway - I have two deals - the red 08 for $9385 OTD or either of the 09's for $9500 OTD (non ABS). Please let me know what you would take. Also, I've been negotiating for weeks and these are the best deals I've found, so just take your pick. I originally liked how the 08 looked the best, and it has a few more HP. On the other hand, I can get an 09 for $100 more and the lost HP can be regained with a $60 mod. Also, while the bikes are evidently structurally unchanged, the 09 just feels a little better to sit on to me, but I like the 08 graphics better. Also, if whenever I sell the bike, the 09 will be worth more so it's a much better financial decision. Good Lord, maybe I just needed to talk this out aloud, but it's my first new bike so please let me know your true, unbiased opinions ASAP.
Finally, I don't want to start a side topic, but in your responses, could you please let me know if I should consider ABS or not? I really don't have any interestin it and have read other threads, but feel free to throw in your 2 cents regarding that as well. (But my current deals are for non-ABS)
