I want to go to that part of the country so bad. Anyone feeling like a charity case? I have no loot at the moment.

There is little run off on that track and it is rough? Are you gonna ride with NESBA one of those days?

W.F.O.ing with style will bring life back into focus

Going there aug 11th with adrenaline freaks. The pavement is rough which is tough on tires but high on grip. Lots of elevation and a ton of fun to ride. Its a pretty safe track imo. Maybe sucide machine is going?

safe...maybe. in comparison to other tracks around the country maybe not as safe. that's why a lot of the omrra guys don't come up here on most wmrra weekends...well that and the $'s. i've seen some crazy shite there.

tito, i've read of your suspension woes on your 10. i'm friends w/ dave and barry from gp suspensions up here and plan on getting some work done from them soon. i'll be happy to pass info along if your bike is still not dialed to your liking.

anybody going?

Me too, run offs in 3, lowsides in 5, the popular highside out of 7 and 8 and the worse has got to be a noobie going out in t1!

Appreciate the offer of advice, I'm interested to hear what seems to work for you. I've been messing around with a few settings suggested by suspension experts and was able to find out where i went wrong. The concept "Free sag is more important than rider sag" hit home. The bike works a bit better now at putting power down now that I have 10mm free sag in the rear. Its introduced some yaw, but thats the trade-off if you don't have the right springs and valving on the bike. We'll see how it reacts at really high grip levels.
