    I would think a person should grab one of many IC-7600 radios that are being sold for as little as $1400.00 to purchase a new IC-7610. I own and use the 7600 and my only complaint is that you can not put display on a monitor to allow you to better see the thing.

    The IC-7300 is an amazing little rig for the price. It has big radio features at an entry level price and that made it very attractive, also the menu setup and the touch screen were a novelty as well. I have heard a few complain about touch screens but I am sure their phone has one and I bet they don't complain about that. There are all kinds of stupid jibs about how if you touch the screen it does something you don't want it to do. I have a 7600 that does not have a touch screen and I never touch it. If I had a 7300 I would only touch the screen if I wanted to change something.

    In my estimation the IC-7300 was a game changer and I expect to see more in the coming years, and some of those will also wind up on the used radio boards too at some point.

    This entire thread was kind of a giant so what.

    I was just looking at motorbikes on Craigslist. There is roughly 60million-gazillion harley-davidsons for sale.

    Not many honda groms though.

    Why does harley suck so bad?

    "Real" Harleys leak oil profusely.

    And changing a belt on a Road King isn't for the faint hearted.

    Why stop there? Buy two used and yoke 'em together! About half the price of a 7610.

    I don't recall asking you for any advice. It's a picture, nothing more.
