Turin, we're waiting for the suspension performance report. Any big difference between stock and now?

Cheers.
I went for a quick rebuild of the stocker to get my bike up and running. So it works great for a stock shock and waayyy beter then before the rebuild!!! I will hunt down a replacement later....maybe a Works Performance.

Had a great ride today!!! Thanks doghouse and razr!

Thumb SCDR and beyond, 5-5-08

I arrived a little early which gave me time to down another Monster while I waited.


Bikes are ready, just need some riders.


Charles salutes while Turin does the anti-salute.


The obligatory perspiration point photo op. Luckily there was an obliging rock to act as tripod.


Charles hits a water crossing...


...and rips on through.


Turin blasts through...


...so fast I barely got the follow up shot.


Some how none of the dirt naps got photographed. Suffice to say my right hip is going to be black and blue tomorrow; but fret not, gentle reader, for I feel no pain.

Great pictures Mike!! I thought for sure the rock tripod at persperation point was pointing a my rear tire!

If you stay at the back of the pack (behind the camera) the naps have no evidence!

The gas tank looks new and huge! Dang, If Nowwhat sees that, he will call it a floation device, now you'll have no fear when doing water crossings, as long you keep the tank half empty!

I hope you feel better soon, since tonight you vamps will have to party and close all the bars in the city.

Nice pics and report Mike! Thanks.

You mean something like this!

But, if the bike lands on mud, DHR doesn't really need the FD neither the snorkle.
