    Never left really...tw has sat since my little foot incident, but now im 98.573% better. I have been riding since then, just been taking the rzr and enjoying a different type of riding. Took the bike out for a 143 mile ass pounding hurts to stand up at the end of the day type of ride. This was my first ride on a newly acquired 3 inch longer swing arm that magically appeared at my door addressed to "xdacDOG". Who could of possibly sent that?



    At first i wasn't too sure that i liked the swing arm. I wasn't able to pop the front end up as much as i use to and yes with a 70 tooth sprocket its very easy. I did notice the shock is too soft for me now..back to experimenting on that. Near the end of the day we did a few nasty rocky hill climbs...this is where i changed my mind. I knew how the tw would react over a few rock ledges and to my surprise the front end didn't come up like i expected..i thought i might of changed into a better rider in my off time...next hill same thing..wow this is great! I couldn't believe how much that extra 3 inches helped..but then again if i had an extra 3 inches my gf would be happy too...

    Glad to see your healed up (mostly) and back on the TW xdacDog! I like the new name. Guess Ronnydog has a new son, err grandson, ha ha!

    So, longer is better.... I did a very short Duel Sport training class a couple of weekends ago and hill climb practice was a bit unsettleing as there was an almost verticle short section right near the top. That ledge appeared to have the potential of kicking the front up enough as to cause a real problem. Well, it worked out ok, but that situation had me concerned enough to check E-Bay for a rear swingarm to mod. Is 3" the magic number? Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........

    xdacDOG great news to hear!! And as usual, great pics and comments! I fell in love with ya'lls country on a recent pass through trip and can't wait to bring the TW's down and explore more!



    Keep healing!



    Mr. Giz,



    I am looking at the same thing, for the same reason! Looking for better uphill control and a little room for a more serious tire to take advantage of the vertical ability gain. (I am not a fan of the rear stocker)



    I am just trying to choose between ordering one, or moding my own. I can't think of a better source than RonnyDOG to go to for quality. Since I plan to mod both my and D's bikes, I thought about ordering one, which would free up one of mine to mod, and if my toddler level welding skills were't up to the task I would have a fallback position.



    Glad to hear these kind of reports . . .



    But first is getting 'Our' XT 350 tank install going (I promise Tom!) including seat mods. Then the new colors, and a rack and . . . .



    Geesh, I need to quit work so I can focus on important stuff!! Worked 84 hours last week.

    Glad you're healed up! It's kind of hard to feel too bad for you though, when you have a Razor to lounge around in while your foot's healing. Now get out there and get some video before it gets too hot! Just kidding, kind of. I would like to see some more of your awesome video. Good to hear from you again.
