Suspension, do I need it or not??

please look at the pic taken saturday and let me know if I should or should not have this adjusted or just keep on riding like I do now.

It feels fine but, landing jumps can give me somewhat of a harsh landing so i'm not sure.. just looking for your opinions please.

Lowered bikes don't look good in the dirt unless you have a fatter tire. And remember even tho you are short doesn't mean you can't ride a full size bike

CJ, That doesn't look like enough of a jump to fully compress the suspension. How fast were you going? My KDX would compress like that coming slow, because of an immediate turn when coming off a table top of about 3' in New Waverley.
