Anyone have or tried a Specialized 05 Big Hit FSR?

wondering what they handle like on big drops and jumps and stuff seems like a great bike, but the price is 1800 bucks, just wondering what some thoughts were on this bike.

It hasn't changed since 02 except for some longer travel. Its come down in price because it is being replaced by the demo series bike. Ok beyond that the bike is awesome. Handles bighits and keeps on ticking. I am 250 to 280 and the bike takes a lot of crap from me. Well worth the 1800$...
