Hey at-home-daddy, nice to hear from another Seattle rider.
Well I don't need to test ride a blue/white to know I want the bike, I assume you're talking about a used one.
I'm actually headed back to the Lynnwood dealer tonight to pick up my Sprint RS from a service and will be once again tormented by the beautiful birds they have on the floor. Think I'll have them run up a quote to get a new one in the "right" color shipped to Seattle, but for that I might as well wait a few months until winter has passed and the 2012s arrive. Based on what I've learned around here I've already got my dream bike built:
Blue/White stripe, BB kit, Short TORs, Twin-T bars, Teardrop mirrors, and solo seat. Dazco I don't mean to copy, but I think you've got the ideal set-up going on.
