Hanes, sitting at the table in the Motor home. At a fun-fly July, 2012. I suggested to Arlene that my goals were to move up to 150cc class for the assembly season 2013/14. Here reply was, then buy all new. So turned out I had my first 176 Sukhoi spring 2013. Now I'm back to the original plan.

What I am saying, is yes set the goal. As soon as you put a date on it, it WILL materialize.

I would recommend the 170 to anyone not needing that last bit of power
That's funny.

No better person to hear that from. Enjoy your holiday my friend. I'll stop by for my punishment next week (ha-ha).

Someone should put Great Hobbies to task. They advertise the DLE 170 for $799. 12 days ago they offered 10% off. That would have stung!
