(but then she had to buy a Sanger because she could not come up with duckets for a new MC - which she of course had every argument in the world for doing so... no big deal we all like to love our decisions)

...but in my case new car used boat is exactly what the doctor ordered - we needed it now and were not satisfied with the 2014 model.

Can't wait to tow with it!

This was our requirements list - the bench and color meant there was only one with in a 500 mile radius available (and no way were we going to find a Denali with the Bench... and no we were not going to wait 3 months to have it built either):

2015 XL
  1. Black
  2. HD trailering (3.42 & air ride self leveling)
  3. 2nd row heated bench
  4. Sun roof/entertainment
  5. Not required it simply came with the Ridiculously expensive 22in wheels

It's truly amazingly quiet and the ride is so smooth - freakin lovin it!

I don't do sports cars - I have little to no restraint, once i am in them I need to drive them as they were designed, fast.

As one of my buddies yugoslavian father once told us in a drunken stooper: "You americans bamma booma like rabbits but us yugoslavians Long and hard like truck"

I realized a long time ago...I'm pure american and while I can handle the power and performance on a track the temptation to drive like that on the street is too great and too stupid. Nope. I'm afraid no fast motorcycles or sports cars for me.

I'm best suited for the Granny geared 3 speed straight six land cruisers of the world.

That said I drive that leaf like a Porsche.... word to the wise the leaf's braking system SUCKS. My Silverado stops in shorter distances.

Kinda hard to prove youre not doing anything wrong when the officer clocks you going 110 in a 75. I rode in a buddies viper acr last week, now that is insane. But the other two tickets, lawyer'd up!
