    Default 07 vs 08

    Looking at 2 ultras right now, an 07 with 15000ish miles and a 08 with 44000ish miles and a trailer hitch. Both the same price. Heard the 7's hade some issues. Whats every body thoughts onnthese years.

    If the 08 has had regular service and looks good I would go that way. 2008 has new chassis and big rear tire.

    The new frame started in 09, not 08.

    08 is a bit of an odd year, kind of a tweener year, but the good news is that the 08s have a 6 gallon tank vs 5 for the 07s

    Yeah what Kosher said. 08 brought the bigger gas tank, fly by wire throttle, and ABS. 09 was the new frame, suspension, and wheels.

    So my take is this... you can never remove miles, it's the only thing that is a constant in pricing.

    That seems to be the way things are lately with toys. I guess it's a sign of a recovering economy.
