I made it out to Lake Arrowhead this week to test out my freshly serviced KTM suspension.

Bike ran fine, but I found it rather slippery and hot. 😉 

Some sections were bit harder than I like to tackle alone.

I had made a bunch of GPS tracks to use and have attached them. But the one labelled "loop 23mi" is an actual filtered track from the trip.

Tracks are attached at the end of this. Hopefully someone else can enjoy them!

Yes, that was exactly the slippery issue. It was OK, but I suspect that in the year the surface is nicer.

As I hoped, my suspension is much cushier... I need to go someplace more familiar to make some adjustments... but that will wait to fall when the desert cools off.

I'm much happier riding in temperatures below 80 degrees!

Kitchen creek, Fred Canyon, La posta will be my new suspension test track when I get them installed next week on my 1200gsa. Endless whoops that are ‘my’ size. I’m not gonna fly that thing 100’ but I’m happy to airplay all those water bars. 
I’m  going up 2 clicks on spring weight and will finally have manual control of the compression/ rebound. 
And a top temp of 104 out there was brutal yesterday.

This is the bottom.  Have been told there's one at the top of the landowner's land as well.

CNF has asked me (us) to stand by and see what develops as talks with the landowner continue.

" Kitchen creek, Fred Canyon, La posta will be my new suspension test track"- this stuff is no where near Lake Arrowhead, right? This stuff is South of Mount Laguna I think.
