At first I thought it was going to be the TW classic. But that was elsewhere. Skippii has improved a lot! We were rolling through Rough Run the other day.

Yep, the same somebody who dropped it before I bought it. Guy said his son "dropped it in the driveway". I told him it must have been rolling pretty good when it went over. Those scratches haven't seemed to have hampered it's performance for either of us.
(And for the record - I came closer more times to dropping my '04 wee than yours ).

For the record, the first thing I did after unpackaging my brand new jesse cases was throw them off the deck onto the concrete. Gotta start testing sometime.

You probably had it longer too. Have mine a year even? Don't think so.

I don't want anything pristine. Friend of mine just bought a new car and I kindly offered to spill a beer in it just so that would be out of the way...

George, I've never had a chip on my shoulder. But do not taunt Happy Fun Guy...

sent via the chip in my head

Cool, planning on being up there that weekend also.

right there with you. I have a Garmin GPS 60 and it ends up being a glorified speedo/odometer.

Right on, Randy! It just seemed like such a good line that I couldn't resist

How about a deal on a cooler for that chip...
