Ouch!

When I bought my NEW DR (well, year old on the floor) I watched craigslist and such for 3 months for a used DR. Not one to be found then. I got tired of waiting. Plus, I got a bike I know hasn't had someone testing friction additives on clutch disk and such.

Of course, like 2 weeks after I bought mine there was one on CL for $3500. I paid $5000 for a new DR. So I spent $1500 more and had a brand new one. Doesn't seem like an ignorant move to me.

And someone calling me "mechanically ignorant" would be like saying the Pope doesn't know much about religion!
