You know, Charro, not getting that Military might be a blessing in disguise. I uncrated my bike in the driveway and had to push it up to the shop, and even though R E is no heavy weight, as bikes go, it seemed awfully heavy at that time. Something about 150 pounds lighter and with the same sort of power might make life easier out in those hills and gullies. Sure, you will normally have power, but there may be times when you will need to get off and push. Just a thought, what do you think?
