Re: Steering Effort

Thanks to everyone for your input it has been very informative. In the end I think the best thing will be for me to talk to Gene and see if I can do I short test drive even if it's just in his parking lot. I think that would at least give a brief try at steering.

Re: North FL CL find-Sold

A member of the collective PM'ed me and said they have purchased this one. Hope it works out well for them. If I wasn't looking at possibly needing shoulder replacement surgery I would have been interested in it myself. At least someone got a good deal.
