Sorry for the delay

Been in italy for work, thought wi-fi would be more available. Good news is I've been working on photos. Bad news is that as soon as I return to NYC tomorrow we're packing up and riding down to the outer banks for a week, and won't be able to post. Expect more in July -- it's riding season, you know.

Hard landings

I'll bet that half-a-van cow catcher complicates landings

Great to meet DR Rock & LDF in real-life
Too brief but I'm sure we'll cross paths again.

DR Rock, relaxing with intensity

Any idea why LDF's stator has failed twice that I know of and Doc's has been fine?

My gut instinct is that she pulls mile long wheelies, and that is causing it.

It only failed once. It's a known weakness of DRZ's. I don't know of any fix, other than to carry a spare. Doesn't take much space at all.
