Is there a DR ride status thread?
We aren't going to talk about the other bikes or how they did, it's not our place and frankly, none of us are on the testing crew, so how could we possibly know?... that's what the article is about. Although, we'll know BS if we see it posted some where :p , but again, won't comment. We'll let the various bikes and their forums stand on their own merits.
I will clear up one tidbit that relates to our bike... NOTHING broke or wore prematurely, at last update (after the desert ride on day two) the bike was 100%. Based on the torture tests these things went thru it's amazing there weren't more problems. I was certain they would have broken something on the AFX by now. Again, we don't have all the details yet. If something breaks, we'll tell ya what it was.
As it stands now, each bike was assigned to a tester/writer for a two week impression.
I'd like to add that while this bike represents our forum well and of course we're proud of it, the best news to come out of this all so far is the job our moderator and builder AJ did representing us. When one of the bikes needed a clutch, he gave them our spare; just one thing we've heard about, you can bet theres more. That's what it's all about. Different forums, different bikes... but we all ride.
