Was wandering, is there some kind of an index in here? I'm interested in WP fork and rear shock conversion on my RD03 (the one above). I'm pretty sure the front end is easy to manage, but what about the shock? Should I take something else?

Regarding the front end, I have found the LC4 forks and EXC450 . They are the same on an eye, but I think the EXC is stiffer and has better valves. What do you think?

To be clear, is it RAISED as raised via longer shock linkage or RAISED as via longer shock (a shock with longer travel). If longer travel, which shock is it?

Last Sunday I visited an RD07C model but I did not drive it yet.

My previous bike was a Varadero. :)
No never drove one, but i think a AT doesnt deserve to be restricted, because on full power it's allready underpowered. But if you don't need all the 60 pony's you can buy a restricted one

In the White Power site it seem not avaiable anymore

Attention AT, converted TA and late 80's / early 90's Dakar-styled bike riders in the USA. (Now that's a title)

Since there wasn't any interest in a NAATS 2014 (North American Africa Twin Summit) I'm going to pursue other activities. It's not one of those "if you plan it, they will come" thing, is it?

Anyway, I may do a local meet for a weekend.

I'll bring the Cuban cigars and perk the coffee.
I've never been to CO. so I'm due. What sort of dates are
you thinking Jim?
