I have to say this site is very good. I have owned many bikes in my life street and dirt. Forums like these are so helpful to someone like me who buys a different bike so often. I just bought a 03 Rincon with 250miles on it from a buddy of mine with all kinds of extras. He decided he wanted a little more power and bought the Kawasaki 750. Well anyway we took them out last weekend and his was a little quicker but I could follow him thru any mud hole he went thru. He added the 29" tires to it compared to the 28" that was on mine. I love the bike. Yea it seems a little sluggish racing someone, expecially with those big tires on it but get on the gas a little sooner and it will do fine in the mud. Just wanted to say thanks for a great site.
