    Well... I wouldn't mind checking out some of the miles of tracks I have on the gps but... I've been riding for the last few weeks most recently with you, you wanker, this past weekend and I need to take care of some chit at the house. :cry

    Besides, I need to figure out WTF is up with the fork seals on the ernge bike. :bluduh

    However, I wouldn't mind riding vicariously through some FFs pics of the area. :deal

    If the seals are leaking you may want to watch this before getting them changed-

    If the problem is worst then the seal itself let me know I might be able to help.

    You can do the same ting with 35mm film or plastic sheet of similar thickness.:deal
    Worked like a charm on the 9fiddy, not so much on Sanjoh's SE.

    Cool did it work? Makes me wonder how many times I paid to have new seals installed when I could have just tried the seal mate.
