You know, I try to bestow upon you slap dicks the gift of my vast knowledge and look what I get? The biggest bunch of unadulterated bullshit EVER seen.

OK, I was wrong, there I said it, about the damping in the compression and compression directions. But this CG thing, and this oil thing, you guys should be seeking my vast expertise on these subjects.

Seriously. Seriously?

Up? Down?

Now how can you say one state or province is higher than another? Isn't the earth round? And there isn't an up or down in space.

Up and down, left and right, are a state of mind and are relative. There is really no true direction at all. All reference is merely a line somewhere on a map.

Awesome thanks for the info guys. I think I'm going to try the cycle gear one. for $100 bucks, "half off" it should work great. I like the moto-mule style but not for that price. I also want one of there trailers!!!
at 420hp I shouldn't notice the bike back there at all. probably drop my gas mileage even more though. lol

Mine is right around 700 ft/lbs... 7.3 V8

And I still get 19-20 mpg on the freeway.
