DRZ400S Forks

I will be installing DRZ400S forks on my XC. Debating progressive vs linear springs. Thinking 5.0 or 5.2 rate on the linear. I weigh 195.

Anybody transplanted these to an XC?

Steering Dampners

Do not see any Steering Dampners. These machines do not need it? Would think it could help reduce arm fatigue but maybe not.

Viajar con computadora

So no problem carrying a laptop on this trip. Using a flash drive? Disk drives do not handle vibration very well.

This report is an education. Love it!
