Lol, yeah I just spent a lot of effort putting together a group buy a few months back, and Kessler wouldn't budge on the price, Oxess would come down 20% or so but that still put them at about $1500 a board. I got my Virus Avalanche FLP AFT for $1250!!!
I would like to try and possibly buy a Ride one of these days though... Maybe during the spring sales?!?
I'd be fine with a demo model too.
