That's great. Do you have stock suspension? Do you stay seated or stand on pegs (looks like you have high bend bars)?

That has got to be a ton of fun in the dirt!

Yup. I softened it a bit but otherwise bone stock. I wish I had more travel but I just slow down when it gets rough. The bars are stock but I made 2" risers and stand when it gets rough.

How do those tires ride on the street ? I'm going to be moving to a more rural area in less than a year.
They are excellent. Don't expect high mileage though or to be dragging your knees.

That thing is kinda shocking to look at. You think "street bike", then you look and see the changes. I can't imagine what it does in dirt.

Looks nice. But the FZ has low ground clearance, be careful out there. :icon_thumright:
For what I do the clearance is fine.

take a closer look. It has a strong aluminum bash plate added. Impact with rocks is a non-issue. I tested it too :icon_thumbright:

I like the look with these tires, it gives a cafe racer style. Obviously if you want to do off-road a FJ-09 is much better, but it doesn't matter if you don't ride on bad trails, this does the job too. Cool idea.
