I have just about 50k on my '06 and I'd ride it wherever tomorrow (after I change the oil), it's as solid as I could ask it to be.

08+ does have several desirable improvements but I wouldn't pass on a 06 or 07 just because of the year, especially if the price was right.

As far as your experience vs. Erik's sense of humor, just take it easy until you muscle-memory those accidental wheelies out of your routine :)
