2006 Burley Paso Doble - Any Experience?

I have been interested in some 2006 Burley Paso Dobles that are for sale. If you have any experience with this bike, I would really appreciate it if you would let me what you think of it.

<> Handling and performance of bike?

<> Function and durability of components?

<> Approximate weight of a medium size bike set up for fun local rides (not long-distance touring, etc.)

Thanks!

I'l be interested to hear what folks have to say as my wife and I just picked up a NOS '05(?) Rumba which I believe has the same frameset at the Paso Doble. We haven't ridden it yet but should be able to get a ride in this weekend so may have some input. Of course you'd have to take anything I have to say with a grain of salt since our toddler will be in a child seat on the back and it's been about 5 years since we've had a tandem. What I can say is that the quality looks to be high and the welds are really nice.

Have ridden many of the Burley tandems (including test riding for the co-op), but never rode the Doble.
All Burleys were great value for the price.
Wondered sometimes how they could build that good of a tandem for so little $$.
Handling is not as quick as a Co-Motion; but as good, if not better, than some Santanas which sold for lots more $$.
If the price is right and it fits, go for it!
