But that's just my opinion everyone feels about it differently.

On another note deposit down on my new R today! But I have to wait until August. We are only getting 25 for the whole country this year. Not easy to get my hands on one. Oh well, plenty of time to save up for kids I guess.
I prefer the mechanical set up over the electronic any day............. besides, ever since I bought it I've been riding with a semi active anyways!!

Congrats though, you will not be disappointed
