    Thanks Ted! I bought some new fork oil the other day (Bel-Ray 5w) and never have worked to set up the suspenders right on the WRR. To be honest, the last time I did any suspension work was back in the day when about the only thing there was to do was to either change out the suspension, change the viscosity of the oil or put in new springs. Adjusting sag, preload and rebound...say what???

    Four more coming down to Jasper from Wisconsin, if the weather holds up.

    Riding out of jasper Sunday to Tuesday.

    We have some good tracks from the Iowa guys, would be great to meet some of the local riders too.

    Iowa pig farmers and Wisconsin cheeze heads too. The horror!

    Just kidding. I grew up in SE Iowa and spent a lot of time contributing to the Old Style economy listening to polka at the big beer hall in La Crosse, so have a fondness for that region. I hope our paths cross while you're down here enjoying the good weather and great riding.

    Great bike. Not much for serious dual sporting but do well on maintained gravel/dirt roads. And you can stack serious miles up on one on pavement.
    I've got access to one if you'd like a test ride.
