    Part of me wants it cause it's one of the only options for a 6MT, but on the other hand, as you say it's pretty small inside, pricy, and poor mileage. But 6MT!!

    Hmm, I think the Govy has good amount of energy for being as wide as it is. Certainly more than a BG. Just need to load up that tail, takes a bit of speed or some mass.
