Since you're not a child, how about you take a day and dig around the website and search the FS threads for historical prices. Graham did you a massive favor by bench racing prices that are accurate. He's not new around here as the dude is pretty much a forefather to this website. As for his opinion whether or not you should ride it or if you may or may not think it's worth a kajillion doll hairs... this website seems to locate new people all the time who ask the same questions and these individuals often fall into two categories.
