It was definitely more like the kid on the Honda Rebel in the pic I'm just afraid to walk in there without a lawyer and get stuck paying it without recourse. But not real keen on paying a lawyer 500+ dollars, I'll call a few local ones and get a consensus.

With 705's and reasonable pressure the Vee was a breeze at 50-60 on maintained dirt roads. In the rougher stuff it is capable, but requires more on the riders part to keep things in check. Eloy has no problems on the Vee he got from me in some stuff that gives mucho pucker factor to ordinary riders.
Buzz, was that with stock suspension? Mine is stock and feels a lot like that mail truck I bought back in 1981.......sloppy! Vic on the other hand, has Ohlins suspenders on his!

Yes, stock on both ends of both bikes, and the 1000 had 80k on it

I honestly can't feel the added weight of the Vee offroad, but the power is really apparent on the street. Then again, I'm no rider, just a part timer.

I'd be up for a "beastish" type ride Tomorrow. I don't have a beast but the 625 in SUMO trim can pretend like a beast, if the speeds are below 80 and pit stops can come around 60 to 90 mi.

The dirt setup is out of action till I get some new rubber and I think I've been sold, by some of you on here, to go tubliss.

Really looking forward to this if it happens as now planned?

This will be a Beast ride so a run through the abandoned train tunnel will be out of the question.............maybe.



Second Saturday in June will be the date if its not raining so put it on your calendar.
