With a 1" front drop and a 3" rear drop the handling will be slow, the front end will want to wash out easier.
The frame will bottom out on the ground before the suspension bottoms out.
This can injure you and damage the bike.
It seems smoother on small chop bumps because of the increased chopperish rake and the decreased swing arm angle.
