WP fork guide

After many years on WP, it was great to jump on the Sherco and not have to touch a thing...


Edit: having said that, plenty on the world stage running WP...

KTM love to rename/rebrand things in the aid of the marketing department.

While there is no doubt KYB SSS are bloody good.

KTM love to spruik an "innovation".

Hmmm. Soooo,the AOS, PSF, PSF2? I guess the conventional forks were pre-2009 so don't count?

I hear you on WP possibly "trying too hard" and stuffing up, but I have to say I like the idea of trying new stuff. It would have been nice if they hadn't used us as their guinea pigs though.

Too many "engineers" ??

You've heard the old chestnut about engineers??

You can always tell an engineer.....

But you can't tell them much !!!!

I refuse to use a Capital on the term engineer, as the profession has been so downgraded in the last 30 or so years, many Tradies have SUPERIOR SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE.

The majority of highly skilled engineers have retired. We are left with the current generation of ???????????

Just my 35 Years of Trade Experience
