Not sure exactly what I am doing with the suspension yet. Deciding between just the springs or CD shock and valving or something in the front. But it's not sufficient as it is, I know that much!

I may be up for that ride on Sunday. On the WR, not the KLR.

Pisgah is 2.5 hours drive from here. That might be a bit much for a day trip for me. Would prefer to keep it a little more local - like within 90-min drive of Charlotte, if possible.
