Look for a second job, because once you buy it, you will want to take it to the racetrack. Once you take it to the racetrack, you will be addicted. Once you get addicted to TRACK, you will spend more money playing on your motorcycle than you knew was humanly possible!
THNX for the info. I went to rockwell cycles and they told me that they can get me an 08 for about a thousand less than 09. I know there R some changes for the 09. Do u think i should go for it, R just get the 09?
It all depends on your finances and how bad you want the improvements that are a part of the '09 model.
Higher Rev Limit
More Adjustable Suspension
New Cockpit Design
Lighter Exhaust (even the stock exhaust has been lightened)
If I were buying, I'd personally opt for the '09, but it would end up on the track where I could exploit the improvements. If you only plan to ride on the street, the changes won't be noticeable in every day riding.
I am exactly the opposite. I would buy the '08 and spend the other grand on track time. I'm not a good enough rider to know the difference 5 hp makes, nor would I be able to feel the difference in brakes. I have never felt any fade or other issues from Triumph brakes. Suzuki brakes, on the other hand...
