Mine is a 2005 with 63,000, HARD miles, dropped MANY times, redlined MANY times, airborne MANY times and never a single breakdown or broken part, except a very deformed skid plate due to my stupidity...

I'd love to have a new one but it's not in the budget right now and I'm not spending ANY serious money until I see what happens in November!... Life is way too short to "wait" a few years until "the bugs are worked out" If you can afford it, BUY IT NOW! Ride the shit out of it, if something breaks, fix it, move on and repeat...
