Never listened to Ramsey, but did like the quote.

For anyone who needs more hours or more abuse potential, I do find it interesting that the two machines are fiscally equal in 3 years (for my challanges I know which I'd want in 20), but neither the hours or abuse would be your case. And I can't argue "paid for." [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

As far as the wires, it really depends on the dealer whether they'd give you grief over it. Of course, if it's not such a distraction as to be "counter"safe, you may as well leave it and consider it the safety feature it's meant to be.
