    Cheers bud, they are nice eh? I can't see how people (lots) think they are UUUUGGGLLLY! :? :cry:

    Well, I appreciate the mentalist, more is more engineering going on in them! I also love the fact that the swingarm looks like it could be a spare part from a railway bridge!

    And the quad link suspension? It's the most awesomest thing I've ever ridden!

    Yes, it is, I love it, censored AWESOME, makes you feel like you can take on anything (even though I clearly cannot!) :lol:

    hehe!
    The amount of times I actually stopped and checked my wolf ridge for breakages when first riding it over severe terrain is crazy. I just wasn't feeling ANYTHING from the back end!
    I thought the swingarm must have broken off or something, I mean, NO feeling. Like riding over glass-smooth tarmac!
    Amazing.

    I think the Quake is ugly..... :wink:

    ...but hey to my eyes you have a stunningly beautiful hartail and a rugged bruiser for the steep stuff.

    Haha, I got so excited by the Quake that I forgot about the Fire Trail - Which is another fantastic looking machine :lol:
    It's a slight pitty that the white on the Fox's doesn;t match the pearlescent white of the frame though - SO GO AND GET IT COVERED IN MUD, STAT! :D

    Lol!

    Am hopefully getting some SIDs in the next few months, the FOX have been awesome, but it always pissed me off (even when walking out of the bike store) that they didn't match!! :oops:

    lovely bikes, that fire trail looks really nice in white and the red maguras+rotors look awesome :)

    I love the quakes too, i think they look really good, and the quad link is really interesting
    good pair :)

    Also i'm glad i'm not the only one that sucks at indexing gears!
