    Most expensive chain ever.

    Broke a chain at walnut creek and ended up getting this

    Never been a fan of raptors. I used to have a ranger that had camburg suspension, I think it would hand a raptor its ass in the desert.

    They do run good on the street tho!

    Aw come on, You want to compare a modified vehicle to a factory production vehicle? I would hope that a modified vehicle would out perform a factory production vehicle Anyhow, the Raptor isn't some God send truck but it handles the desert just fine in factory trim...I'm a Native West Texan. I actually knew a guy who did the Moab run using a factory 5.4L Raptor.

    Hell I thought it was fords attempt at a desert truck. I think the only reason I don't like them is the price tag!

    You do know that you can buy just the chain without buying the bike to wrap around it right? jk man, very sweet bike!!

    Can I get in on this trip to Moab? I have gas money and a 12 pack of frozen burritos to offer.

    Something similar happened to me. I sent my wife to the car dealership to get a key made. She came back with a new key...... to a new car.

    I rode one. I compared it to taking my 18 wheeler downtown at 5 o clock.

    Please tell me that because it has a steep headtubeangle that is the reason.. i'm begging you.

    I'd also be willing to bet that this ells turns better than your epic.
