I agree with Greg.
Twice offroad is more then enough to understand that the OEM AT suspension are limp.

When I got my first non-Soviet bike, I also was very surprised about how poor made are front forks- Soviet ones all I had on my hands was with at least one valve- like these emulators which are used to upgrade leading axle forks.

Used seat

For those in the US: Do any of you have an RD03 or RD04 seat available for sale. No matter if it has scratches. I need to make a solo rider seat and will use it a base. It could also be Corbins, but I'm on a recession budget, so adjust the price accordingly....

I wanted to post it here, before going to the flea market.

Last week I went to Sedona. It turned out to be a very short trip due to strong thunder storm activity. I played a lot of "catch me if you can" with the rain. I lost twice.

For all you Dakar followers out there, the French just rolled a little bomb into the room (at the last minute as always)

KTM..just said:

KTM press release here:

http://www.ktm.com/KTM-News.223.0.ht...ash=ecd1127720

Maybe the ASO should just stick to pedal bikes


These guys are just so...............................French
