    $1675 for a complete rig including racks and LX group seems pretty reasonable. I'd love to see one and try one out, but I'm not likely to see any around these parts.
    People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.

    I can ship directly from my shop to anywhere in the world, if there is no shop nearby.

    I would be interested in knowing what's in the $800 LX build group mentioned on the website (maybe it's there but I missed it).

    Thanks for the detail!

    Looks like a fair deal to me, especially with racks included.

    I've wanted a Bruce Gordon tourer for many, many years. Unfortunately, I've never had the money. Maybe someday. Thanks for the info, Bruce.
