Dirtdiver,

It is finally raining here in the Dallas Metroplex. I just got the bike plated and can get it out on the street to and from places. I noticed in your signature the CRF250x. That was my last bike and I miss it because of how easy it was to ride and its really nice handling. How does your 530 compare to your "X"? Just curious. I have wanted an Orange thumper for some time now and finally have one.

I have noticed that at 50+ MPH on the road the front end is a bit light. I would assume that is because the front of most dirtbikes is designed to go over things instead of provide the same traction bias as a street bike does front to rear. I'll scooch up on the tank and see if that helps.
