remember you cant go wrong with the first gen since it has the looks and the monster power and the 08 has no looks but the performance is the greatest.

Personally I'd never go backwards. Even if the newer bike got stolen or totalled I'd go forward. Kinda odd if you ask me...I owned an '04 for two years and an '06 for two years.
The '06 was a better all around package for the street IMO. I compare it to getting back in a relationship that was disolved...if you really miss it or think it was better.
