Im worried about my frame snapping in half going offroad. However, I took a junker Spree down a trail once hopping over logs and such. I bottomed out the springs over and over on sidewalk/driveway bumps but it held strong. Maybe these babies are tougher than I give them credit? Let us know how it goes. :thumbwink:
I need to find some new haters...the ones I have are starting to like me.

haha. for what its worth, i once followed some motard/drz guys on back dirt area of an abandoned go cart track on my 87 se50. i accidentally followed their line a little too close, not noticing a giant dirt ramp-up section just right of a small regular size whoop i was "jumping" earlier (like a few inches off the ground.. lol). well that ramp shot me up about 4ft into the air!! had hang time and everything, then came down hard. everyone saw, applauded gave me props haha. even did it a second time on a dare to film it with same result, altho BARELY stuck the landing, again 4ft up then slam to ground. 'ol girl seems to have held up pretty well tho, i had those exact same concerns prior :lol:
