Had one of these the other day. I'm guessing anyone that's ridden trials for a while has experienced the same thing. Is there a name for it?

I've been quoted $7,300 for a '14 Beta Evo 300 2t. That inlcudes shipping but not taxes or registration. Trying to find the balls to pull the trigger.

Sound like a good price?
