You'd be surprised . . . he's pretty tough!

I had the privilege of a brief ride, and it is amazing! Considering how little time Luke's been able to spend on refinement, the throttle feels remarkably conventional. It's already very rideable and I know it will only get better. The power feels great, and the rider who almost looped it (and is much more experienced off road than me) said the front end came up really easily after he loaded the suspension a little. If it had some body work to protect it, I suspect there's a market for it even in this gestational state.
