    Talking Slowly But Surely

    To my bike to Derek's this morning (DKR RACING in Port Kells). He spent a good hour with me going over my suspension. You know I've been riding for three years now and am still learning about dampening, compression and rebound. This time we are dialing the bike in real slow He cranked up my fork springs (compression), and tightened up my rear shock, now I don't crush my nutz when hiting pot holes in the road It was a good informative lesson today, I know I've been through it before with Bernie, but that was in a class and I sort of sat there, not asking questions like I should have I could feel the difference already today, I'm going to ride the bike as is for a while then make any adjustments as I go along... Now that I have 3400km's on her (In 6 days of riding ) I can use the entire RPM range, quite the pull this bike has Thanks again to Derek for his time and patience

    Ya, they call the throttle an "adrenaline dial".......400lbs and 150 horsepower will definetly do that
