Howie:

I saw somewhere that, and I believe it's Monroe, that makes a shock kit for RVs. Shocks...people or not in the 5vr, would make for a bunch better ride for everything else- especially those off-roads in the desert. It is something that I'm really thinking about, but will have to get past the warranty period on the axles.

Really!

OK.... lets do it in 2 years. Your right on

Opps.... I think it is one year for the axles

Howie:

That's exactly the webpage I saw! Good one...I think that'll work just fine...I bookmarked it!

Griz...or should we call you TrailGrizAir...THAT would be soooo sweet, but I'm not quite sure the FBI would like the way I would have to finance that purchase.

Thanks Guys!

Don:

Good question...I thought about that myself, but you know- if you're gonna do 4, why not all six? Not only do you get a better ride, you should also do better on the tires. Although, I am a firm believer in changing them every couple of years...it's called insurance- I just don't have to pay AAA.

Ha! We used to do this in the mud behind horses after a good rain in Oregon - which was all of the time. No seatbelts there either.

That's definitely the 'downside' of gravity...I've got an friend's 400EX that still needs to be gone through...fortunately, the two-wheelers have a tendency to just lay down (hopefully NOT on top of ya!).
