    Nice! are you running with the stock rear shock or did you update the spring? rear shock bottom out at all over large bumps? I'm getting mine ready for some 2up riding as well.

    Woohoo! Next thing you know she'll be out riding it without you.

    It was great meeting you two at Moab.

    Haha!! No leaves here!!

    Great meeting all of you as well! I think seeing all the fun in Moab got her hooked! Hmmm. Another Tdub may be in our future! Gonna try a little longer/ faster ride tomorrow.

    No suspension upgrades yet. Nice and slow on paved roads. Rear felt ok, but the front dives a lot on braking. I am thinking will have to upgrade the fork springs if we make a habit of the 2 up.

    Anybody have suggestions on that? ( fresh oil and adjustment would probably help)

    Loaded and ready for some 2up camping. Stock springs and forks. Did great on the pavement and some logging roads.
