Thanks a ton for the write-up and pictures! You've definitely helped cement the idea for me. My biggest hurdle now is finding the bike with the best deal. I'd be willing to ship, but it's so nice to get to look at your bike before the purchase. Speaking with a local dealer, he somehow managed to make an 8,500 sticker turn into about 9,500 after fees, taxes, setup, blah blah. I feel like especially with the economy as it is, I should be able to get one for no more than 7k out the door. Thanks again, I'll be sure to post some pictures when I find the one!
