hahaha well thanks for that! I prefer 4th and 5th myself, I blame the dust on the tire tread pattern.....
OK, if $500 is good for shox then have at em. I don't ride enuf to justify that but YOU do.
I'll have to fly in and try it when you get it all done.
My old boss at Bend Recreation [the service manager] is a retired USAF pilot, an avid glider freak and an all around nice guy. He used to build Steve McQueen's Harleys and his Dad owned Orange County Cycle in Cali. [big outfit]. In fact, he and his dad prepped the bike that was filmed in the 'the Great Escape' with Steve McQueen NOT riding it most of the time. Here's a guy with some great stories!
I'll bet he would fly to Colorado just for the fun of it.
As for the dust, there's a trick to it: be the person with the helmetcam and ppl let you go first, even tho the best video is not in front. Winter is fun [no dust] buy a helmetcam and I'll give you a deal on this spare miniDV camcorder I have.
