I designed that DSM logo.

You must never remove it. It is a design of beauty and function.

Oh- I'm sure you'll find the suspension too tall for you, and you'll want to find a low-mileage standard bike with which to swap components. One in Southern California.

No, we hope your legs are short, and desperately need to lower the entire contraption.

I may know someone who'll be happy to facilitate

Oh, I'm sure you'll feel so much more comfortable with it just a bit lower. And think of the money you'll save by avoiding those pesky tip-overs...

Remember, I'm here for you....

Already had my first tip over so there a nice gentleman on a multistrada helped pick it up too..


With that said is it normal for the bars to moved back and forth (front and back) a little bit with bar risers?
