But there are tons of options and you know they ain't gonna be cheap, so fully loaded ya, over $20,000.
Right, that's exactly my point.
$15,500 is doable. Even a grand more, sure. I don't finance anything so the lower outlay of cash the better.
The problem is: I want it all. LED, cruise, etc. No ESA, so I guess "not all."
But you add the LED, cruise, panniers, and then a few signature farks to make it your own? Then tax-title-doc fee-license-insurance?
Sheeeiit, it's too damned much.
Then you compare it to a private party 2nd hand bike and all of a sudden you can afford to wait 5 years for the "new" model.
