My dealer is telling me he is expecting next week. He will call me to come down for a test ride as soon as he gets them.

Actually no. I live near Niagara Falls and ride across the border to Bonjoes Cycle in New York. If you are interested in demo riding a 2018 I'm sure Brett would let you. Just tell him Rick from Niagara sent you.

Last I talked to Dualsport they mentioned they don't intend to bring any in unless they have a deposit in hand.

I took mine out for it's trial run this morning. I rode about 4 hours today with a mix of really nasty rocky single track, and some mellow double track. First off.. the engine is simply amazing. In stock form with no adjustments made at all to it, it felt killer in the nasty. It just kept chugging.. can't stall this motor very easily at all.

Handling is decent, but I need to work out the suspension. I'm heavier than what the stock springs were designed to handle, so it get's busy up front like my Beta did before I put heavier springs on that bike. I was alerted by GasGas that they will be informing dealers of spring rates and will have springs available through them next week.

The bike feels really planted, even with my current under sprung situation. Unlike my beta that often feels uncontrollable, the gas gas just seems to work well. Rocks and logs that I avoid with the Beta I was jumping with the GasGas within the first 5 miles of seat time on it. Pic below of today's ride. *Note barkbusters are on order, but couldn't wait and had to get some moto in.

I checked this bike out in person yesterday and it looks awesome! Top notch build quality. Hopefully I can ride a 250 and 300 before I pull the trigger.

It wasn't me but I've been wanting to ride walker for a while. Thanks for the offer! Since Tillamook is closed I've made other plans most of this month. If I don't get one before October I'll take you take you up on your offer!
