$1,000 for a decent 350? I think I want to move to North Carolina! Or at least just visit there with a trailer.
I agree with your riding philosophy. I take the BW for all of my solo riding because it can make it through a lot of scenarios without having to ride at a ten tenths pace. Nobody expects speed out of a BIgWheel, so once you break 10 mph, you have exceeded everyones' expectations.
