You have responsibilities but you're living off of student loans and you're wanting to buy a toy??
Anyone else seeing this??
You shouldn't be so quick to assume, granted I provided you with very little input about my situation. For a college student handling his responsibilities and able to get a loan round 4.0%, I must be doing something right. I've done the math, checked the amortization, and know how much I'll be paying back in interest plus what the bike will be worth in four years. I'm far from a dummy, and over time you'll see.
You aren't the only one seeing it Chris.
OP its cheaper in the long run to save money for the 08. Once you get the bike its not like you will have the couple of thousand laying around to throw into the bike for the exhaust and other things, and trust us it will be a couple of thousand. But to each is own. If the 08 is really what you want you should get your dream bike not something different.

Thanks for the advice and support. I'm okay with the bike being stock as the good things in life sometimes takes time; well, at least for a someone like me. OR, just maybe, I have contingencies in place for the things you speak of. Again, time will tell.
OP, where in philly are you located? I went to Temple
I live in University City. Temple isn't bad, but I had to go there to fit certain constraints. I had other opportunities, but life situations intervened, so...
Save and get a Crossplane..no point being stuck in the past...
I've considered it. Still do on occasion, but see posts below.
You make it sound so terrible.
Many of us prefer any model other than 09 and up, the OP being one of them.
To each there own.
Absolutely. You're on target. Couldn't be more righter.
Please...........a cross planker is already stuck in a 4-yr past.
This is true, and while the CP is the newest thing, if memory serves me correct (I could be slightly off), the '08 R1 came with the highest HP and TQ numbers right from the factory in comparison to all other R1 models.
