Thanks for nailing down the year, i figured it was around there but I didnt see it in the catalogs I looked at.

I rode it to work today and it was a great ride. I actually cut 5 minutes on what had been a 40 minute ride. Hard to give more credit to the bike or barely hitting any red lights, but both to and from work were record speed.
