After riding dirt bikes for many years and seeing how well built the forks are on smaller off road bikes(450's), I have always been surprised at how under built bigger "Road Bike" forks are compared to their size.

Just look at how small the effective mounting surface area is on a GS 650!! Its unnerving what keeps that fork together. Are you kidding me? That bike is almost twice the size as most off road bikes.

Scares me!
