Default Finally pulled the trigger!

Picked this up today, to bad its 39° outside and raining today with a chance of accumulating snow tonight here in KC. Might be a couple days before I get to use it.

The red is the fastest, but the black is pretty close. Congrats on the new girl

Congrats! I own a Red and a Purple and the Purple is a tad faster... But "is faster better?" A common question in a certain commercial that has been playing lately. I asked one of my twin 5 year old nieces that this weekend and she said "It depends. If you are at the top of a building and need to get down, you can go down the stairs or take the elevator or jump off the roof. So I would say NO, faster is not always better." She's a smart one

British Racing Green? I think you mean Packer Green.

I love mine and am sure you will get years of use out of it.

Nice, too bad you didn't spend the extra cash to get the superfast red one though!

I can't believe you didn't get the orange one. It is faster than the speed of light. True story.

A little known fact, it can be used when cooking stuff inside as well.
