Does anyone want to do a mini bike/riding clinic? I get lots of requests for help with suspension and or riding tips I thought everyone might want to do it together. That way we would not jack up a good Friday and it would be easer to do it in one groop instead of one by one.

If you can teach me how to make an R1 suspension handle 275 lbs of twisted steel and sex appeal, I'm in like Flynn!

I'm off on Fridays, and am very interested in setting my bike up a little better. As it stands, I've just cranked everything up to it's tightest setting and ridden the wheels off of it.

You guys tell me when you want to do it. I am free most weekends. I think I work next friday so that is out. If we go into depth on suspension that could take up a whole night and not cover everything.

Stubbie have you considered putting in stiffer fork springs? That would solve many of your problems though you probibily should also put race teck in too wile you are at it. The R1 rebound circut is a little weak stock even for lighter weaght person and a stiffer spring could help out a lot. Good winter project though it doesnt take all that much time if you have the right tools. The shock could use a stiffer spring too but that is serious work it is easer to get an aftermarket one.

All right how is this Friday..... Sat is also an option but the weather might not be good. I wanted to do it last sat but some people wanted to drink.
