I received my electronic copy of Popular Mechanics labeled May 2017. The  cover features the topic "Smart Everything". They visited IMWA headquarters and went on a snow ride. They loved the bike. Good article.

What is truly scary is the fact that as these great bikes get more and more acceptance in this country, the more expensive they will become.  I look at parts and accessories for these bikes and they are becoming out of reach for the ordinary people.

That's because all the old parts have been used up. Many parts are made outside the factory in order to get the highest quality and lowest cost they can get, but with these low volumes of production the parts will never be dirt cheap again. The alternative is to have nothing.
