I think this is really significant.

Large DS bikes, from the S10 to the GS to 950/990, are still rather piggish in the dirt to many. Yet smaller dirt bikes, while wonderful in their element, aren't that good on the road.

It appears ya'll have bridged that gap. And perhaps even created a new motorcycle segment.

I agree, Lobby. It makes rides enjoyable that used to be marginal- either too much tech dirt for a big bike, or too many miles for a little one.

Another issue people go on about is how much maintenance the 450/530 is... that hasn't been my experience. About all they demand is fresh oil from time to time, but even that is a 15 minute job easily accomplished at any autozone along a route.

Beautiful. I didn't think of doing that for a jig. Soo simple!

Cool stuff Looks like parts are back from being anodized. Can't wait to bolt mine on as well.

How are the fairings coming along?
