    Some people just don't respond to 'Double Dog Dares' once they are out of gradeschool.

    I've seen that purple beauty and the Rolhoff bling-bling. Still waiting to feast my eyes on the Mav.
    So what was the end result with your Blade?

    Hey Squeak,

    The Mavericks should be in this next week so stay tuned.

    The Switchblade is in my garage chained to the wall. As you may or may not have heard, I recovered it and the police left it in my charge until the case is completed. We have good news in the effect that the guy that was riding the 'Blade when I stumbled across it, fingered the guy we've believed all along actually stole it. So, the case is hopefully making progress in that I can one day have a conversation with an insurance company and see if I can't buy it back from them. Since they've already paid out, I'm basically just holding it for them unless I can work some sort of a deal with them. Keep your fingers crossed.

    --El Beastro

    Yeah, I heard about the on-trail apprehension. It happened the last time I was out in Loveland. Nice to hear that everything is coming together & the scum got ratted.
    Looking forward to riding with you & the Purple Beastro in 3.5 weeks when I permanently arrive.

    As soon as Larry gets that rig going please post your impressions on the 6" rocker & Mav. One of those Mavs has my name on it & I'm still deciding between the long travel X-5 & El Chamuco.

    Now...the million dollar question.

    I believe the question on a lot of people's minds is "So how much different is Madhatter over the standard Venatana blue powdercoat"?

    With the help of a couple of pics I borrowed from another thread, we can all see for ourselves. Now granted, lighting and camera setting may be different but we should get a good idea on the differences.
