Hello from northeastern Ohio USA.
I finally bite the bullet and bought a Bullet. I just purchased a silver/red 2020 Bullet 500 Trials Works Replica from the original purchaser. It was not my first choice but since they're no longer available here new unless you find one left over at an RE dealer, I went with it. I hoped to find a chrome/graphite Classic 500 but sadly none to be had. Of course one will pop up now that I committed to the boony Bullet. It's growing on me.
