    There can be only one............




    ..........errrrr ............. bike I mean.

    I'm not exactly sure when I'll be able to ride a big bike again as I'll be rehabbing for a while, so I sold off a bunch o' goods which included my 66SL and VP-Free frame.

    In the interim, I revamped the RFX a little in an attempt to do the "one bike does it all" thing (despite the fact I made it a little heavier in the process) and plopped on a 2006 Boxxer Ride.

    I gotta say that the Boxxer looks like a damn tooth pick to me now after having a 66 & 888 for last year.

    Meh....whatever......it looks promising nonetheless. The Maxle is sweet and the travel adjust works nicely and was exactly what I was after. I'll have to wait and see how it performs later. Hopefully I can get in some leisurely trail rides within a month or so.........we'll see after PT.

    A Totem would've been cool, but I ain't paying no G for no damn fork no how.

    Nice build eio, it's perfect for the stuff you guys do. I'll be looking forward to hearing how you like Boxer compared to the 66 SL. I'm still pretty happy with mine, let us know what you think after you get it out on the trail.

    Girth? Geez! You make me sound like a lard ass........although I may be a fat ass by the time I can get out again.

    The pup is still pissed at me for getting busted up and infringing upon his trail time.
    But, Donna took him for jaunt out at Tokul on Sat.
    I'm glad to see my girlie get some saddle time though too.

    Yeah, I was a little reluctant to move away from Zoke as this is my 1st non-Zoke fork in a very long time.

    But, I really became disenchanted w/ the 66SL after checking out a few 888's in the HL crew and then buying one myself.

    I'm not a big fan of ETA at all and the travel adjust on the 66SL isn't convenient enough to be useful to me.

    I've heard nothing but good about the Ride so I'm keeping an open mind. We'll see.

    Looking forward to you getting back out on the trail, regardless of fork choice.

    Nice looking rig. I am curious what your evaluation of the ride will turn out. At a simillar girth (6'3" 225lb) I have been eyeing that fork for the last season. I finally put in my order for a frame that can handle it, but have been holding off to see the rest of the 2007 details in the single crown market.

    Nice Looking bike! I like the color of the fork and the frame, doesnt appear to be to raked out either, I imagine the ride of the fork vs coil shock should be a nice balance. Heel up soon. Love Aussie's BTW.

    eio - Nice looking bike and fork. Looking forward to the ride reports once you heal up. (BTW, that's an impressive amount of metal you have in your elbow. I can't imagine that traveling in this post 9/11 world would be very easy with an elbow like that.) Just one question - why the Frenchie flags on the lowers?

    Heal up quick!
