I agree. If I really want to quote something and include one of the original photos, I remove the others that I don't care about.

Personally I see the USD as a downgrade in this. Im running oem, but will be getting the suspension revalved.

I'm running stock with a fork brace. So far it has worked well for me, but I'm not bombing down single-track all day. It would be nice to have the full-adjustability of the 650R forks though.

Any idea the elevation where you were in all that snow?

Based on the number of people who do it (ever read a ride report?) apparently, yes, it IS necessary! Sometimes not even for a line of text--mebbe just a . Or a .

Strong recommendation here for the Once-Inator. It works great. Also the De-Crufter. Both available in Ask Baldy. The illegitimati no longer carborundum me.

That's why I said something... there are a lot of people here who apparently don't think to trim their reply, don't care and are too lazy, or whatever. And it's a huge waste of everybody else's time. It's inconsiderate.

Not sure.
thats on 4613 north off the 4610
Made it through, but just barley! Rode around 2 to 3 miles in the snow kicking and pushing the whole way. It was brutal and I was beat by the time I made it through.

The girlfriend hadn't been on her bike in a month or two, so when the sun came out this morning we decided to do a quick little ride. We were going to do Canyon Lake, but her heated handgrips aren't installed yet

So we ran up Cleator real quick. Sunny and 50ish degrees at the bottom, and by the time we got to the top it was snowing! Then it cleared up and was downright beautiful.



Note to self: supermotos don't like mud
