To me, $106 seems cheap to get solid info on this trip considering what you guys will have invested in getting down there, lodging, food, and fuel. Especially as you have a pretty short timeframe....

Crazy stuff! :eek1
Well, the bike is probably gonna handle better with new forks, and better it happened here than south of the border. So, DRZ forks?

DR, drinking and smoking. Update.

A few weeks ago I posted up about an oil consumption problem with my DR.
Last week I swung by the shop (CycleTune PDX) to see if my previous visit to stock the 'fridge had any good results. Yep!...

Question I dunno..

Thumb Thanks-

The 10.5 kit is a possibility-definitely a lot less expensive! Possibly a "middle-ground" compromise with the shop as well if I end up using them for the rebuild.

DR, drinking and smoking.
