@AdamBrewer No idea since I haven't tried the Remedy, but honestly, the main reason I was considering it is that I like the graphics better. Though that alone wasn't enough reason for me to spend 2x...

So I didn't notice a speed difference between the regular Harley and the Grind version. Both are fast boards. Pehaps if I rode them back to back, I might have, but it'd be very slight.

Thanks, that's some damning evidence. So glad I passed on the $400+ Remedy and got a $220 2013 Harley instead.

The only thing that concerns me is the board I ordered is a grind version. I keep...

I like the $1,099.00 price tag, but there are some red flags for me.

Main one is that the listing on 1sale.com claims it has an SSD, but the listing on eBay says it only has an HDD. Googling that...

David, here's an option for under $2K:

1) A Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series [1]. It's got a core i7 CPU (2 cores, 4 threads -- so Windows will see 4 processors). 16GB of RAM. A nice 15" display with...

Jo, it worked really well and helped me a ton. It's a little awkward/scary at first (just like on a wakeboard, really), but once you get a hang of it, it's a great tool.

Yeah, they'd need all the parts and someone to install. Don't think they'd want to buy the parts separately. Thanks for the reply though.
