"Fit and Finish around the Crossfire's tank and console is nearly perfect."

"Fit and Finish of the Apex and Attack handlebar are is sub-standard..."

How about suspension...

"Mono-Shock RA bottoms out too easily on large bumps." Sounds familiar Ken :W

"Sno-Pro suspensions are calibrated so stiff that they don't allow full use of travel." I love it!!! Need stiff suspension for a fatazz like me!!!

There are more adjustments to the monoshock than I knew about - was able to compress the spring and move a clip in closer - that is suppose to cure that. Otherwise they do have a stiffer spring as well for people 250+ with gear.
Recently I was asked to play in a golf tournament.

At first I said, "Naw, I haven't been playing that well."

Then they said to me, "Come on, it's for handicapped and blind kids."

Then I thought...




Chit, I could win this!

You don't want to compare noise and vib MM...the clutch engagement on the Yams they tested were not good.
