Did a ride on the Dragon. Bike handled surprisingly well with stock suspension. Those peg feelers need to come off. They scrape easily.

I plan on making a loop through 129 on June 26th. Making my way to Muddy Creek in Blountville to the Motocross Nationals. That is the best place that I ever raced.

Would have been fun to hook up! I was there Wed May 21 (yesterday as of this post). The FZ gets lots of thumbs up at the resort.

Might be back down in September. I'll have to remember to msg you if we make it down.

That's a great angle.
It's the Gopro Roll-bar mount attached to the frame slider. You can see how much the front fork moves which is neat.

Here's what I'm talking about with the feelers. They don't allow for aggressive lean angles.

I like that cam location, have been thinking of doing something similar. If you have a chance please post a close up photo of the mounted GoPro.

I just got around to mounting my Woodcraft frame sliders, seems that using a longer bolt for the puck can be a good way to mount a cam.

Yea, that would have been hard for me to get off work in the middle of the week. Maybe Sept if it's a Fri/Sat/Sun and not a track day weekend.

This is how it was mounted to the slider. It's the roll-bar mount.




It can also be mounted upside down for a lower view.
