Ive been obssessing about this bike for about a month now. I have been riding a ninja zx6r for about 5 years now-but just recently started looking at cruisers-probably because I started using my motorcycle as my everyday commuter to work or wherever and its starting to get a little uncomfortable-I leave my house for work at 5am and being in such an aggresive riding position that early in the morning is painful-I need something more comfortable-ill still keep the ninja for tricks and stuff. Anyway I had a list of like 10 bikes and after researching and looking that number started dropping until I was down to Meanstreak vs Warrior- decided on warrior-it just does way more for me looks, power- even if its not as comfortable. So my main question is : I really want a warrior now, but my sensible side is telling me; Its almost August already and the 08 models are gonna drop in like a month or two-the 07 models are gonna go down in price-Or I could see if they change the model at all for 08. If it was 3 months ago I wouldnt even have this dilemna cause I couldnt wait that long-but I might be able to wait a month. What should I do-wait until the 08 models drop and then buy- or the **** with it and buy now. BTW money is an issue. I would be really dissapointed if they upgraded the engine or something vital for 08 . Im gonna start a color thread.

so i am asking myself why anyone would want a meanstreak over the warrior? the warrior is way cooler than the kaw. imo. i know what your talking about with the crotch rocket though, i have my 06 limited busa up for sale because of the riding position plus the warrior is way more popular with the ladies

Well, if money is an issue, then you should be able to locate an '06 left over at a dealer for a great price. That's if you want new. The best deal, however, would be a used one with some of the mods you already want done.

You have a good point! You really dont have much to loose to wait to see what the 08 has to offer. If there is no change then you could still look for a good deal on a 07.

IF you have the will power to wait......you are a better man than me. I think you will get the best deal looking for a newer used one with some mods already done.

I was obsessed on the M109 for a month or so before I ran across the Warrior, never considered the mean streak. I sat on one and just felt it didn't "fit" me at all. I have no regrets whatsoever, even now that mod fever is kicking in in a big way.

if u will be financing, your best bet is to find a new 06 or 07 at a dealer and take advantage of yamaha's 7.9% apr factory financing. i got my 07 for about $10,500 out the door including a 4 year extended warranty and i've been people do better. used bike financing is usually at about 14%~17% which is crazy if you think about it. finance a $7000 bike you pay an extra $3000+ in interest over four years.

that being said, have you looked into some naked sports. i have a triumph speed triple and that thing is comfortable as **** and super fun to ride. i'm looking at the suziki b-king now...that would be a crazy bike!
