    topic describes it pretty well. I've got plenty of questions I'm going to ask while I'm there, but I was curious if anybody has a question they'd like asked while I'm there.

    Hateful stuff won't be passed on. I'm not trying to ruin a badass trip with something that'll flame up the guy giving me a tour.

    The custom shop kind of got shifted into the gold class/concept team. I don't think with just one or two guys they're worried about bringing the custom shop back.

    The ti handle Balis may not be gone forever, but won't be a production model again.

    That's kinda the word I got.

    Sorry I missed the response! When I got home, I went to training for work and spent my time studying for the test. Took that yesterday and I'm home again.

    It's a signficant building, but not as large as I'd figured on it being. In 2008 they had an expansion of the factory floor of ~4000 sq. ft. I want to say that basically doubled their area. Now they have offices and such up front which are probably ~2500 sq. ft since they're on two floors.

    I got a pair of socks from the launch of the HUNT series. Derrick wanted to give me something that I couldn't otherwise get and that certainly fit the bill. :)
