Great photos!
I softened up my front by 4 clicks less on compression, 2-3 clicks more on rebound damping, from factory settings (11 clicks). But by far the best thing was lowering my tyre pressure, what a difference. If you haven't tried it yet, I recommend it. I think I'm somewhere round 15psi now.

I enjoy your report and keep it coming.

Hopefully we can put together another ride.

Hi Joel!

Good to hear from you!

Yes, we should do another trip, either to DV or Nevada or perhaps even up here in Tahoe.

Regards!

thanks! I was running my tire pressure at around 14psi. I'll soften the compression and damping a couple of clicks and see what happens.

Nice riding - thanks for the pics. That area was my motorcycle learning paradise in the 1970s. on my 2 smokes yami YZ125 DT175 and a KDX175
The lake is called Prosser Reservoir and the settlement was Hobart Mills.
I lived at Hobart ages 0 to 5, 1960/65 then we moved to town - Truckee. A lot of cool logging history in the area. Cheers

Yes, Prosser Reservoir. I saw a sign for it, but did not know the settlement was Hobart Mills. Thanks for mentioning it. Wow, so you grew up in the Truckee area and now your in Chile?!? Pretty cool!

Yup, went to UNReno, got into mining and have worked in CA, NV, CO, UT, ID and Chile, Peru, Venezulela and the Domincan. The world keeps getting smaller. You should ride the Martis Peak area - if access is still open. Try to go Martis to Grey Creek - good single tracks. Or Coldstream to Tinker Knob to Hwy 89. Or Weber Lake to White Rock to Jackson Loop. Or Serene Lakes to the Cedars to Forest Hill to Auburn and back - lots of places to go. Have fun

Get a good look at that rear tire.
