THIS WEEK IN MXA: A LESSON IN SUSPENSION WITH PRO CIRCUIT’S BONES BACON
In episode 47 of our ‘This Week in MXA‘ video series presented by O’Neal, we talk to Pro Circuit’s long-time suspension guru, Jim “Bones” Bacon, about his retirement from full-time suspension work and what he’s up to now. The topic of air forks also came up, and Bones explains how the Pro Circuit Kawasaki 250 team used to run air forks until they had a triple blind test that ultimately led them back to coil spring forks. Bones also explains the basics of suspension and gives out some tips to riders who are looking to feel more comfortable on their dirt bike.
Also included here is an interview with Andy Gregg from Guts Racing, talking about their unique seat cover, the RJ Wing seat. We really like this seat and are happy to help Guts spread the word about it. Plus, we look forward to riding more cool bikes as the 2021 calendar year gets closer to the end.
