Last Shake down before the off...



Saturday saw our last shake down of the bikes before they are packed of to Turkey. But very excitingly it was my first test of the new Tractive rear shock.

Well chalk and cheese was the phrase for sure! I was blown away by it performance. It was smoother than a cashmere codpiece! I noticed instantly that it made my forks work better too, Bonus or what!

Watching KTMmitch in front of me also gave me the opportunity to watch the shock work and it looked as good as it felt.

The other noticeable improvement was how the back end tracked whilst accelerating out of gravely/sandy corners. It didn't snap out loosing traction but had a controllable slide. Very confidence inspiring. I look forward to using it in Turkey as i found it very hard getting the grip our of the loose corners there last year.

More from Turkey! :-)
