The Flying Monkey Rally was EPIC! We need more people from AZ next year, I cant be the only one representing. There were 3 guys from Mississippi, 1 from Texas, many from California. Over 30 bikes.

When we took this picture quite a few people had already gone home.


Devils backbone


Toroweap 50 feet from the Grand Canyon


Laying on the Edge


Boulder Mountain snack break


I got the 690 Enduro to 101mph on this dirt road


I'm one happy rider

The road leading to Toroweap in the middle of a Monsoon! It was like this for miles. Lots of spots over 1 foot deep.

Looks like Toroweap does get pretty muddy after a rain.

Are you asking how good is Alan's work? If so, he did the boingers on my 2010 690r and set it up absolutely perfect! And that is no small feat, as I am about 325 geared up. 3 day turnaround, and I got to fondle the factory Beta's! They are a true work of art. Cody Webb's bike was there as well.

If you want a true professional set up, (with the pro price) call Alan. He is also local, and will be here for the long run.

I went with the full revalve, springs and grease of all fittings, I took him the whole bike. I had a small leak in one of the fork seals, and he fixed it in one day and no charge.

I have never had a suspension set up this good before. I had Super Plush do my 990 and it was good, this is great!

I hope this helps. Take care, Eric.

Thanks Eric...thats the kind of endorsement I was looking for. Superplush did my 990 as well but my 530 was setup(valving & springs) by a shop in CA and the only thing that worked was the static sag....I was looking for a local place to fix it.....
