    I bet it’s folks realizing that 10% more utility isn’t worth 20% or more in weight and 30% more cost. Long live the 50!

    Ship those old polluting models to: 2strokebuzz’s Galewood office.

    I’m sure they’ll be shipped to India, refurbed and find their way to Ebay post haste.

Got something to say?
