Before the world fell apart there was a time when you could demo bikes. I had a chance to ride a Ripley V4. As expected it was a great bike. The same day I also test road a Ripmo V1. The Ripley V4 was different from my Ripley V1, not better, just different. This test ride led me to select a Ripmo V2 as my next bike since I figured I could keep riding my current Ripley.
