Sorry for the vague info but only reason why I posted is to test if its worth setting up a GB.

I am trying to work out quantity and price with the as soon as I get an update on the price breakdown, you guys will know too...Sorry about the delay.

I am getting the consensus that everyone wants the GP HD. IMO is the best one...So I'll setup for that.

As it stands the retail is $299.00 HD Motorsports HERO.
So I'll find out exact price when I get an update.

I'll try to get the GB setup for Monday....

thanks guys

if it's the HD one, then I'd be interested. I almost jumped on the riders discounts one for 212, but was short on cash then. Now that christmas has come and gone, and i returned all the crap I didn't want, i've got some moola.
