The new suspension set-up is freaking unbelievable. I cannot even describe the difference it made in my riding ability. The forks feel so good that it's making the shock feel like crap.
I only have one problem, I did a race in Mexico this weekend. I was running 3rd overall at the 80 mile checkpoint. I was on a dirt road running wide-open with 14/45 gearing, when I tried to pass a truck on the right side I hit a large pile of gravel and wadded it up. I never had time to let off the throttle.
The guy that was driving the truck woke me up and went to get my bike for me that was a few yards down the road. I finished the race 6th overall but the bikes a little twisted up. My body is VERY twisted up. I lost alot of skin, chipped my front tooth, blew out my left knee, and my ass cheek is black.
I will not be able to enjoy the new suspension for a few months.
I think I may have to sell the 650.
Are you nuts!!!!! Passing on the right side? Where you also trying to read the paper on the trucks seat? Man, I don't know anyone that crazy to pass a Mexican on a dirt road in Mexico on the right side!!! With all those ruts that come off the side of those roads.....that is insain! Wait, I think David Grey and I might have tried that last time we where down there. But, I won't admit to it. Did you write about this on the group? I must have missed it.
