sean, the bike was flawless. light @ 250#, nimble and with decent power. don't need more. throttle is very crisp.

still stock suspension and was soft, but it didn't bother me.

14/52 gearing is great. stock was 14/45. bike and rider are happy on 3rd gear. 60 mph on pavement is ok,

i will be installing a 5.3 gal tank and an aftermarket exhaust next.

after the suspension job (3/4 lower), a steering damper will be nice.

Any rides planned before the DV Noob Rally?

i will still do another shakedown ride before the noobs rally. keep an eye on this to have more noobies showing up and get some dirt experience.
