So Dungey's air shock isn't compatible with the 450's vibration. Weird.

The weight loss of going to air shocks seems too great to let em die. I wonder where we'll see em next.

My 2 stroke has a different vibration. Maybe they'll let me test it for a while.

Can you imagine how light the bikes will be once air forks and air shocks become the norm.

Some day the current group of riders will the old TUFF guys that had to lug around those heavy four strokes (without traction control).

I stand corrected, not the first time either! I knew it was somewhere warmer and dryer than here, but that isn't saying much! I'll take RV this weekend, but I usually do. I'm pretty sure Millsaps will be in the top 3 or 4, which if he can keep it up, will make it hard for anyone to catch him. But it has been a great season so far with few injuries and unpredictable results. Let's hope that part continues!

It seems that I read a few years back that a race prepped 500 was puttig out in the nieghborhood of 70 hp. But either way, one thing's for sure, there was nothing like the sound of 40 500cc two strokes blasting out of the gate.

They have some nice motors. I have been looking at the 350. For 2013, they really got some more (and good) power in it. . I need to ride one first though. I'm not dropping 10 large on what "they" say.

I agreed they are priced proudly, there's a lot guys out here in Colorado using them for enduros and loving em, after they remap them with the European mapping

The part with Tomac at the end is pretty cool eh? I love his practice track in CO and you get a good idea of what the desert sand riding that we have around here is about.
