    After taking the rzr camping, the poor TW started whining in the garage and wanted to some action. Demarko69 and I went out for a quick ride up on the rim north of the city. We beat the storms and managed to get in 60 miles of fairly easy riding in. We changed the fish oil from my front forks out and put some new secret stuff in and I can sure tell the difference! Both of my forks were low on oil, which would probably be why it was bottoming out all the time!

    Looks like the fork is bottomed when you were at a standstill. I need some of that top secret oil.

    On the white bike? Thats demarko's. He was coming in hot and heavy and tried to hit the camera man, so the suspension was squished.

    Ya, I figured something was going on there. Also, couldn't remember which bike was which. I like the high front fender mod. Looks sharp.

    Amazing views.

    Yeah, my forks are very saggy too. I'm going to put new oil in this week and fit some spacers on top of the springs to get rid of some of the sag.

    Looks like a good time! Where were you guys at? Had my ol' TW up in the Williams area last week, I'll post some pics later. Question - did you have to mount the aluminum bars on your tusk handguards upside down to fit? I fidled with the brake side for quiet awhile before flipping them so the label was upside down.

    Nope, just filed them down a little bit. That was up off the 300 roads on the rim. Easy rides but it got me in the saddle again.
