Here's one... the rest will have to wait for the ride report.

I had an awesome time with the bike. Managed to meet the ex-factory mechanic that cared for this machine in the past, got his help sorting out the rear shock, and got a great feeling with it on the trip.

What amazes me most is how big a difference the trellis frame/ etc make at high speed. Soft sand is dispatched with ease I have never found on an enduro based, bike, my theory is that when you ahve the front wheel half buried, and are at full throttle to keep going, the XCW ties itself in a knot. This thing doesn't- dead straight and true. Same with rock hits at high speed- it eats them, you feel the suspension move but none of the whippiness of an enduro bike.

Had a blast riding it, now have to figure out what's next for it.

Oh, and as for the If you see Kay wine graphics, announcement coming soon...
