I probably couldn't care less about the Motive 95 (unless it's in front of me at a ski swap), but the methods of you guys finding it and buying it (word of mouth, what's on the buddy beside you, what you can try from them, etc.) sure make sense to me. It's how I ended up with some of the improbable skis I like most. Including the ones that few on Epic seem to like or even know about.
Oh, and this year I really do want to try those ON3P Billy Goats.
P.S. @segbrown , thanks for the "cheater bump ski" reference to the FX 85, in your review this year. It prodded me to finally getting a pair of older FX 84s when I got a chance, for those hardback bumps. It works.
