Did you buy hm sight unseen or did you go to Ricks to see and ride him yourself. I'm really at a loss on how I should do this. I'm very leary about this internet stuff also. I read to many horror stories and this is a lot of money to get something I am either afraid of or can't handle. Thanks for your help.
