Tsk, tsk Walter. An accomplished overlander of your experience should know not to abuse your equipment like that. Clearly you should have taken a page from some of your companions, and reduced the wear and tear on that suspension by much more extensive Bongo usage. I bet the contents of their forks are at least one shade less grey.
