I boogered around a local canyon for a bit today.. forgot how much fun this thing is. I drew a stripe at the exit of every corner



...local ORV area has been shut down



...spent quite a bit of time pulling over and changing the geometry of the bike trying to get the handling where I want it




Carbon fiber is hard to photograph well

Nice Geek! You like the new legs? Taller is better!

Big Bend:




Using all 10" of suspension on Black Gap Road:




Waiting for everyone to catch up (all those cute little dirt bikes! ) on River Road (the dirt one). Absolutely FLYING!

Gav:

Mine have been extended front and rear.. 55mm more in the forks and here's the difference in spring length (amplify whatever this is by the length of the swingarm axle arc):




The bike sits significantly higher. I'm 6' and I'm tippy toes (or if one foot is on the ground, the other is 8 inches in the air)



Hope this helps

Sweet! Ya man, let's do it. I had a blast. This was my 4th time to BB but my first on the dirt backcountry. It's made for the 950s.

Had to do the paved River Road too:

Both ends at 10", new springs and custom valving. I told Javier to max out the length and "make it perform well everywhere, on and off road." He did!

Is that a Mefo you have on the back? If so, how is it? I'm burning through my 908 fast!!
And like everyone else, I have Windscreen envy!
