I got eyes on the 2013 today (unexpected as im in hawaii and the 2012's didnt get here until this paat march . The 636 looks nice. But i do miss the blue accent decals. And wasnt blown away by the gold forks and disc, imo it looked a little off. But still. Nice bike!
Keep your feet on the pegs and your wheels on the ground!
-- start your therapy......cause they have rarely gotten cheaper
Unfortunately, I am firmly aware of that fact. Stupid inflation.
I had a string of four "new bike" purchases and have since moved into the "used" bike acquisition mode. Perhaps if I fall a$$ backwards into butt-loads of cash I will change my mind back to buying new. However, even at $12k new, they are still way cheaper than cars, and more fun.
