    I am tired of being beaten to a pulp riding my KTM 530 in the desert. The stutter bumps created by the side by sides are brutal. Please recommend a good suspension shop in AZ that you have had good results with to make biking in AZ more enjoyable. Thank you

    Not AZ but after trying a number of shops recommended by inmates and being disappointed, I went to ESP (Exceptional Suspension Products) in La Canada, Ca near LA. Fortunately I had the oem parts to put my KTM 500 back to stock and start from there. Took a previous tune that was unridable (like slow 2nd gear in the whoops) and turned it into a beast, 4th gear on the throttle in those same whoops.
