Hey Guys, pics of my new bike picked up last week, and now with 230 k's on the clock. All I can say is "holly crap" what a bike. I don't think I've ever gone so fast off road with total disregard for personal safety whilst still being in control and most importantly having so much fun.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

Just removed one disc and caliper. SE950 mastercyclinder(better feel) and good to go.
Makes the bike lighter...suspension reacts better and pops better monos ;-)

Doesn't quite pull up on bitumen like the twin setup...but I double the GF with sport rubber on and just have to use the rear brake a bit more.
Tis still more than powerful on the dirt.

Not sure what ya mean about the forks???
