THAT'S WHAT I KEEP SAYING!!! it doesn't seem to work tho'... I have been working on sliding the rear this week and getting used to the rear's tendencies. Hey,Backmarker,is it true that a harder rear end tends to high side less...or is it the other way around,I can't remember. It's funny,ever since I found out that I have cancer I've been riding alot harder,hence the crashes but I feel that I'm regaining some of my lost speed.
