Thanks Dan ...

It made it that much nicer that she'd fallin' off the bike a couple weeks before the convention and then got back on so damn quickly ...

KUDOS to her for that !
Definitely :fact

A couple years ago I got photographed all over the gap with a passenger, and people started asking me how to setup/ride for a good two up ride. I said it's all in the passenger: if they trust and relax, it looks natural. You guys look good and natural :bow

I try to avoid passengers. But one thing I did learn (suspension wise) is the rebound speed needs to be increase. I was drifting with the Icon rep :lol

You going to make it next year? Shane has much up his sleeve. Can't miss it :fact

as of right now i'm fully planning on it. good heads up on the rebound speed. if you can help, i may need your assistance in a month or so regarding some government based paperwork if they keep dragging their feet like they have been to make sure i'm good financially next year. i'll shoot you a PM if i need to find other means of getting the paper work later in the summer.
