2007 vs newer KLR

I am an aspiring adventure rider that finally decided to pull the trigger on a bike. While initially I wanted a newer KLR I have zeroed in on a 2007 for a dandy of a price. I know the 2008 model got some updates - especially in the brakes. Would you guys suggest holding out for a newer KLR (potentially costing $1000 more)?

Thanks a ton in advance for all your help.

Having had both, for travel and more of an all around adventure bike, I prefer the newer gen model.
If I was going to keep it stripped down and thrash it off road harder and more often then I would prefer the earlier gen model.
Either will do though. Differences are subtle enough.
