I didn't even know they made Ohlins for XR's. Where do you park that thing at night? I might want to stop by real late and take a look at it.

Ohlins makes forks for CRFs. He is using conversion triple clamps.

Wish I had the money for these.

Should have just bought a Husqvarna. It comes stock with all the good stuff. Sure it doesn't run half the time, feels like you are on top of a 2X4, and gets 10 miles to the gallon, but it looks good and when you look good you feel good.
