I got to meet this gentleman after I bought a B50SS from him a year or so ago. He was willing to drive to Dallas and meet me at Big D Cycle. It was a four hr. drive one way for him and saved me another 8 hrs. on the road. I was speaking with him a couple of days ago and told me he was selling the B31. Phil is a great guy! I would not hesitate to buy this bike, but I have one already and kind of put the brakes on buying more.
