Well I gotta say thank you to all those who are helping me with my decision. I am really happy with my Baron, but it's just getting old and beat up as I take it around Minnesota..used to before I discovered the greatness that is mountains. Around Minnesota there is nothing but hills and ice and I just am goin to be strictly mountains just because I get a lil depressed when it takes 3 minutes to get up a hill in MN and 1 minute to get down...just no ride there and really just one line you take down, no originality. But I am definately going to take a look at the Rome and Never Summer brands now that you all mention it. Thanks for the updates and keep posting..I'm sure it helps other folks who are big fatass giants like myself haha!
