Bump

It's pretty quiet in here.

I had been feeling a bit guilty about neglecting the suspension linkage on my bike so I serviced it yesterday. I wasn't sure how the bushing system would hold up because of my previous experience with another bushing based linkage. After pulling it apart, I don't think I need to worry. The design and build quality on the OSSA is far superior to the system I had used before and I see no long term issues with it.

Some TLC, a new fender and sticker and it looks pretty good again. So good that somebody should make me an offer I can't resist so I can get the 2015 I'm drooling over. :D

If I didn't grab a new to me bike a couple months ago I would be all over that.

I've got heavy fork and shock springs I need to get rid of, off of a 2013 gg.
I put the mediums back in.

damn I'd love to but between finding a new place to live, alimony and child support payments that would come along with it, I'm coming up a bit short.

DaveM, you have 2 wicked trials moto riding area within 20min. Heck, maybe you can even ride from your house. I know Bryan does that when riding Eagle

I could be interested in the springs for my 2010.5 Raga. How much do you weigh if you don't mind me asking [HTML_REMOVED] why did you go back to the medium springs? I always feel that my trials bike feels undersprung compared to my mtb, especially when descending steeper stuff.

looking to get into trials?

one could buy this ride it for a year(see if you like the sport) and easily sell it for a profit(if the bike is as good as it looks)afterwards.
