Update on the performance of the bike so far. The bike has been getting it done, but struggling at times. It sure would be nice to have a few more horsepower on the steep climbs. The lack of horsepower makes picking a line a lot more important. The engine is very smooth and linear which helps to maintain control in the rough stuff. I'm getting over 60mpg even on the slab sections. The bike has used no oil. The oil still looks good even after all of the heat in Utah. The suspension gets overwhelmed fairly easily. The rear packs on washboard or continually rough stuff. It doesn't want to hook up the rear tire after a few seconds. I called Racetech yesterday to order a new rear shock with remote reservoir. They are building it today. Hopefully, they can send it to the Racetech dealer in Rifle, CO to have it installed during our rest day in Glenwood Springs on Monday. I'm also going to have the gold valve installed in the forks. It will be cool to see the difference while riding the BDR. Expensive, so hopefully worth the cost and trouble. The tires are doing well. The front Rallycross was a handful until I lowered the pressure. It was great in the sand, but horrible every where else. Now, it is predictable everywhere. It is showing no signs of wear. The Trackmaster hooks up really well until the shock starts packing. It is starting to show some wear, probably 30%. I'll edit this to put in the mileage so far later. 771 miles so far.
