    Rubber side goes down, shiny side goes up. Good thing you have backup bikes, Hope the other rider does too.

    Besides the obvious......

    #1- some dark cloud of death is descending upon the earth to destroy us all.

    #2- more than 2 turns were needed to achieve proper sag on that shock.

    On a serious note, sorry to see that, I hate it when stuff breaks.

    The brake lever on the left doesn't line up with the one on the right, you guys miss everything.
    You have just been mentally Rick Roll'd. Yup you're thinking about it right now aren't you? Don't fight it.

    Nice arm-chair engineer job on that rocker.
    Since when did Need have anything to do with this?

    Bummer Cytoe. Hopefully that didn't happen during one of your Yoda-like jump turns. Could mean the dark side is lurking.

    May I speculate on location of swingarm breakage? Coming down Foothills on either north or south side of damn at end of Laporte?

    Out of curiosity, did you hear it break or feel it break first?

    I was kind of wondering about that rocker.
    It almost looks like... No, no way someone would modify a rocker like that and expect it to last. That perfectly curved chunk must have fallen out when it broke.

    The bent brake pic is funny... Not 10 minutes earlier I was defending why I leave my brake levers a little loose so that they have a better chance of rotating (and not bending) in a crash. LOL

    Actually she is using them and I really don't plan on selling them, but I mean I have to entertain offers for these custom, lighter than production version rockers right?

    Just tell Kevin that Jamie wouldn't be caught dead running a production version...

    ALLWAYS leave those levers a smidge loose so they don't break! That is an old MOTO trick, unless you like buying levers and or getting screwed in the back country :O)
    My bike takes me places school never could!

    So if you were nice enough to part with those, I would be like Jamie?!

    Is that a selling point?
