Unfortunately, due to looking straight at the fork without tinted goggles, he has also lost some near-sight acuity due to retinal damage

I will have to make do with new oil & tweaking the clickers on the 'ol 48mm Sachs oc's

OK, I'll tell.And yes, Ive got gold tinted glasses on. I loved the Ohlins on my Ducati(s), Gassers and the TM.
Dirt forks wise Ive ridden/owned Marzocchi 50mm CC, 45mmOC,48mm CC, WP 48mm OC ( multiple), WP 4CS ( 2012,2015), Sachs 48mm OC ( Gasser Euro with DLS sliders), 48mm OC (480 RR), and probs some Ive forgotten.
The new ( to me) forks are so much more refined than the 'fixed' 4CS ones that were on my current bike ( I suspect they've had the Terry Hay suggested mods ie RT compression adjusters, the base RT valve ?GR2- although not done by ShockTreatment).They are NO comparison to my new forks.
The fork (and shock), meant I rode in a more controlled fashion, smoother and with a bigger grin than ever before. I also ride with 14-15psi in my tyres- so the tyres are absorbing less than a lot of other riders'.I was aiming for rocks!
They look awesome, and are beautifully made.
Had I not happened across them here,I'd have bought the TTX insert or the Dal Soggio insert.
I know this isnt for everyone, I'm lucky I can.

Stuart, me leading a Gd 5 ride would be even shorter than my usual efforts.

However, I would like to tag along next Letter A ride as I haven't been there for 5 years.

Anytime any of you Cenny locals can work up the patience to handle the M5 (or M7) there's an open invitation to come ride Spot X.

All good!
