The 12 has the new style frame and 180 rear. The handling is excellent.

New! New! New! No comparison in the ride and handling between an 08 and a 12. JMHO

A vote for the copper CVO. But keep in mind I am totally biased. When looking to "upgrade" I was looking at those 08's like JPs bike, still like that color. Then ran across my 03 which is a CVO that was it. When they built that bike they knew I was coming.. Chrome, upgrades, 103.. I really can't think of very much I'd like to add or change.

Yeah, the new frame and tire is a huge plus even if I'm a CVO fan.

Man... that's a tough decision. Any chance you could buy both of them But push comes to shove... I think the ride with the new frame and the warranty would steer me towards the '12.
