    So as a few of you know I picked up my new M1010 this week. I won it on Govplanet and it had a code of A1. Well she's no A1. But close enough that I took her anyway. She has 2408 original miles on her. Yes only 2408. NOT 102,408. The condition of everyday wear items prove that as well as...

    Balancing 12 bolt wheels?
