Congratz!!!! Before you ask..... Yes... the gear box does get better and will stop jumping out of gear eventually!!!

Replace the battery if it starts leaking, otherwise.... Enjoy!
To ride or not to ride... That is the question!

I like the chrome on the DeLuxe.
There aren't many bikes around today with chrome on them, outside of the Harleys.
I bought a DeLuxe Iron Barrel model 2000.

Enjoy your bike!
It looks great!

You will get a LOT of attention at the gas stations and in the parking lots.
Be ready for it. Work on a short explanation for the people who ask you about it when you don't have time to talk. People will be asking about it long after the novelty of explaining the bike wears off.

What happened to the Chrome / Black one?  Wasn't that you with the military repaint/unpaint saga?

yep. at the moment that chrome black is still with me. just waiting now for the new owner to complete the final payment.
when i bought the black/chrome in jan 2012 i was originally after the maroon version. there were none in stock and a long 3 months wait for the next shipment from india.
so 3 or 4 weeks ago i again got the bug and inquired about the maroon/chrome i was told this time i was in luck and the importer had 2 in stock.
so i made a quick decision and placed a deposit and now its another run in period for me.

Boy, don't you just hate to break up the pair?  They both look awesome, personally the black and chrome is my favorite, but that's just me, enjoy the new red one!   ;)
