I picked up my new 07-08 Saluki at RBW on 03/28/08. It turned out better than I could have imagined, Grant himself rode it and said to me that "it doesn't get any better than that does it?" I couldn't agree more. This is the best riding bike I have ever, probably will ever own, and by far the best looking!
