When you bought your first viper was it the brand new model for the year or did you buy a used one and then later upgrade? I am thinking about buying an older one 1st or 2nd gen first. Love how they look but also love the features of the newer ones. With the prices today, my thought process was to get a gen1 or gen 2 for under 35k, pay it off and by then the gen 3's will probably come down in price and then I could buy a gen3. right now I would want to keep the first one too. these Vipers are really bad for my sleep patterns. can't stop thinking about them.
