Yeah, but just picture Horst Leitner in the 1973 ISDT sticking his 750 through some sapplings in Mass-a-choosits, at speed...



...and I'd fork over the $$$. What the hell, no pockets in a coffin.

Yee hah. No torque problems there. Just hope the cylinders don't get stuck between some trees.

It seems to me like something must be missing from the description. I think it would not be possible to use air as the dampening medium because air is compressible, hence, "a spring" and would therefore have its own "undamped" oscillation frequency. In otherwords it would bounce it some frequency without control.

It's dampened with oil. Not air. Air is for the spring.



You really should have known.

That would be damped, but not with oil, with air. re-read the explanation. The air is run through "air throttles" to achive damping. VWW

They are predicting snow for this Sunday! Damn, I thought we were done with the white stuff. Overall, the weather has been pretty good. Think of me in the bad weather and crappy roads as you ride the open class sportbikes. Now I have another reason to hate you! LOL

Lots of things change after an election. Mainly, different a$$es get kissed, if a new guy is elected.
