    Looks sick. You should post a detailed build in the Sultan Setup thread with weight.

    Now you just have to ride it and get it dirty!

    Awesome. Looks like you went full XT. A solid and worthy parts spec. Nice job.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Nice whip! But, just looking at the angle of those brake levers makes my wrists hurt!

    Nice stable. That's exactly how I'd do it. The white fox with the blue looks very good (you need a YZ now to match your Turner ).

    Yeah, i see alot of the pro moto guys running their levers high like that. I hadn't seen it applied to mtbs though. Whatever works for you.

    Hmmm, to me even your levers on your MC look to high. On the MTB it seems you'd have to really rotate your wrists down to access the levers, ouch. Anyhow, nice bike.

    The 2nd pic is north of the Alaska Range east of the Parks Hwy. on the Ferry Trail, about 5/6 hrs. north of Anchorage just past Healy. The 3rd. pic is up towards Red Mtn/ Youngs Creek. The trail head is at the King Rv. on the Glenn Hwy. about an hour northeast of Anchorage. Both exceptional MTB and MC riding areas, miles and MILES of trails.......The first pic here is of Denali from the south side enroute to Ferry and the 2nd is California Ck. on the Ferry Trail system.

    sweet Sultan and motos

    I agree with the lever comments....don't get it unless it's for freestyle motox

    color combo on the Sultan looks good....looks like a pretty light build too
