In addition to that question, I guess I might as well introduce myself. I'm formerly from the Denver area, and I've been in GJ for almost a year after spending way too long going to school in Texas. It's good to be back in Colorado, and I'm getting into riding because I love exploring this wonderful place we live in!
I'm from Gunnison, spend some time in GJ, and Fruita in the spring and fall. Happen to be there right now - mountain biking not motoring though. Anyway, I have been into a Honda shop on 25 road, right behind the Subaru dealership a few times. I am pretty new to all this, ride an older BMW, but these guys were extremely helpful and had a good selection of things I thought.
Interesting about 2nd gear. I'll have to check that out.
