Yep, staying at least somewhat in shape makes riding a lot more enjoyable. I don't even drink much beer when I'm going to be riding the next day. It's easy to get all hyped up to ride over a few pitchers of beer and then the alarm goes off at 6 AM and you think about staying in bed instead. Not worth it but I'm old so hangovers really hurt now and last all day
I wish mine were only all day. When I get a hangover I dont feel right again for 3 days. Haha oh how I remember the days of going to bed at 4am to be at work by 6am saying I'll never do that again. About lunch time I'm calling my buddies to see where were going tonight lol
I am around the 1500 mile mark for this mod. I'm happy with it. No broken parts. And hit those moguls as fast and hard as I can everytime. Its what's sets me apart from the rest of my group. I have yet to tell my good riding buddy on his 850 what I've done. I've given him my set up except for the mod, and he says "I've done everything, I just cant get mine to handle like yours, your on rails". Now that seasons over I'll fill him in haha
I dont move the sled until it hits 70F. Then easy on it until I reach normal operating temps. Which has always been 104-107, then I dropped the rear down with the quick adjust from 2 to 2 and 1 line. Now the operating temps where 86-92 for the 2nd half of the 4 day trip. Quite a difference getting that flap just a bit lower on the trail.
