Agreed. But they are still very few in no.

Was not trying to offend you, am sorry if i did. I was just saying, that particular situation is not the best criteria for choosing or not choosing the gypsy!

LOL john, I'm not paying, its you, so you please decide, and if you are going for the gypsy King, I'd take the 550. BTW, does the 550 have a 5speed?

If the MM550 is mechanically/body wise and engine wise good, then go for it.
Looks like you are pushing him towards the 550 eh?

Well my mind was made up for me! My friend who owns the King, has decided to hang on to it for 6 more months. So I guess its the MM550.
