Just sacrificing reliability and some off road performance. The pluses might be worth it for you, only you can say. That RE is a good looking steed for sure.
Concerning your TW purchase that fell through, there are a lot of guys who will only accept cash, and it’s hard to blame them with so many scams going on. If you’re going to seriously shop for a TW, you pretty much need to have the cash on hand, ready to jump at a good deal. Good luck!
