Both are well farkled
Price difference is about a grand.
BUT and this is a biggie
I sit in Sweden and the bikes are in SoCal and a fellow here on ADV is going to have a look see.
I'm going to use the bike in cali for a wek or two and then I'm off to Mexico and beyond and I aim to go to Argentina on it.
Spontaneous reactions please.
The grand is not that important and yet again waste not want not
If they're EU models (so the 2008 has the new dash, while the 2007 has the old), then I'd go with the 2008, as it has many improvements (for ex. better throttle control) over the "old style dash" model.
If they aren't EU bikes, so they both have the old dash, it doesn't really matter which one you pick.. pick the one that you like better - if this is the case.
