    Thanks

    Thanks so much to all of you for your input. I guess I will wait for the 2013 bikes to come out as I understand there will be more low models available. Looks like the R will be a good choice as well...

    Thanks

    Appreciate the input. Perhaps I will get a used one now and get a '14 when they came out. Need more time to make up my mind, there aren't too many low frame ones out there and I really need one.

    RV camping available?

    Hey, looks like a great rally and would love to attend with my wife. As old farts we sometimes like to use our RV instead of a tent. Dry camping is fine, can we also do this for the $15 a night?;)
