If it's nothing but a glowing review with no negatives, then I wouldn't. If you actually have some issues with the board then post it up. Really though, if it has come to a point where people have to worry about putting up a review of a board on here then that's pretty sad for this community.

That's why I'm hesitant. I absolutely love the new Evo. It is an improvement over the old one.

That's where a unique aspect of my review would come into play though. Only I have the ability to directly compare and contrast between the old Evo and this new one. I rode both of them on the same day just for that purpose.

So my review, although glowing for new Evo, will be finding faults with the old Evo where I didn't notice them before.

I would say just do it and say fuck it if people give you shit about it. It doesn't matter whether you do it now or later, haters gonna hate either way.

But before you do, what do you think about an Arbor Roundhouse CX 163 or 167 wide for me? Deals can be had for 420 and 450 respectively. Or do I wait for the Legacy or Heritage 166?

Yeah, i wish to fuck I could get to Highlands for this weekend too!

She's actually not planning on driving either. We have a bunch of friends in town that she's going to hitch a ride with. They all pack out a cabin one of them owns up there. Bodies everywhere. haha

I wouldn't care if you rode along with us if our 3 young children weren't coming along for the first half of the trip you creepy-ass mofo. I suppose we could always throw you in the back of the pickup with the dogs. Don't worry, we've got a topper so you'd be out of the wind. lol

Bring a sleeping bag and crash for the whole ride up there....or make a sign that says "Help Me!" and show it to people as they pass.

HaHa!! I could Zip Tie my hands & feet as the Cops pulled them over too!!! Bet that would get quite the reaction when they saw that!!!

(Now if one or more of you sarcastic, smart assed SOB's was goin' up in a group,.. I might ask to tag along! Might even be willing to be tied to the roof rack if it got me there!!)
