Good question, I used the chart Buell gives with a bike purchase. The bike felt extremely stable all the time, until I hit the dip.

Gotcha. I was just curious.. I disect wrecks to try and learn cause and effect.

What happened when you hit the dip? Bottomed out front or rear, or not enough rebound and it kicked back up too fast?
