WOW... HOLY FUNK... I'm SCARED...and a little bit of...I THINK I PEE'D I had to say how pumped I am...my wife is getting tired of me talking about this bike like it is a new, sexy mistress...well it kinda is All kinding aside I was blown away again today....this bike gets better with every ride. Second gear up this hill and it was lugging so I gave it a LITTLE twist and WHAM, I am unicycling up the rest of the hill gaining alot of speed. I couldn't get enough, I climbed more hills today then I ever have. I may be in Saskatchewan but where I live there is alot of large hills along the many rivers I live by. I also did some single tracks (ie - cattle trails thru the hills) and the bike handled great, even with my overweight, inexperienced ass on it. I may just have to leave my BRP as a dirtbike and not motard it.......YEAH RIGHT!! Can't wait to ride this beast with NO tire spin...just 100% pure traction. My poor DRZ just sits in my garage collecting dust with my Buell and pitbike. I have no urge to ride anything else. Best bike I have owned hands down!!!
