All I got to do is stretch her suspension just a bit and RIDE! This ABS thing is kind of cool.

Need to break her in before the superbowl this weekend!!

I truly hope some ADV'er gets hold of my S model at some auction.....

I was thinking R height.

Not sure if the tall seat height had much to do with those tip overs....more of general laziness and trying to follow some guy whom is 6'5 and rides two up like Matt and Kelly.

Bert's R is the perfect height.

Not that I plan on doing "rubicon" type trails much but the clearance sure helped here....

I don't normally ride on the street,,,but when I do,,I prefer lane splitting.
