Beautiful bike! Well thought out and done!

Just curious why you swapped out the brake rotors?

Thanks Jim!

I just wanted two complete sets of wheels so I can keep one set up with knobbies at all times, so I went all in and did the rotors and ABS ring as well.

With Woody's wheels are you still tubeless? I see stems in your tireless pics.

Nice looking bike.

Fantastic looking pig! And you got the faster model, too....RED. I like it!

How do you like the Ohlins? Are all the ESA adjustments the same as the stock suspension? on / off road, passenger/luggage/pass+lugg, sport/comf/norm ?

Yes they are tubless, Woody's will seal them for a tubeless application if you order them that way.

The Ohlins operation is exactly the same as the stock ESA, adjustments are made through the ESA button and have all the same settings. It actually is plug and play so its all prewired to match.

The ride is 100% better on the street, I have only put 100 miles on it so far without the paassenger but it feels way more connected to the road and just overall tighter in the corners. I am about 100 pounds heavier than what they build these bikes for so having it built to my weight makes a huge difference. I wont see much off road until the snow on the mountain clears and then I'll have a better idea of the overall package.

Had you given any thought to the Adventure Designs engine guard extensions?
