I don't know what I would have done if I was out west and there wasn't a tree nearby?
I haven't ridden it in anger yet, but when I tested it over a few obstacles around my property It does pretty well...... flies much nicer than my modern dual sports. It's a little porky........ the factory spec sheet says 108kg, or 238 lbs, but I'm sure that's "dry". A real world magazine test, gassed up and ready to go, put it at 275. I hear what you are saying about center stand. The works shocks were built off the VB card, and are a little longer than the Betors that came on it. Same thing with the VB forks. When I'm in the dirt out back I'm always looking hump to park over or a rut to put the tires in .

The next project is on deck.................................
