Not sure what you're asking about what is titanium. As far as the brakes go I do like the disks, weird thing is there is only 1 disk on the rear
that doesn't make any sense to me. I do Love the IRS, of course after riding with a Solid Rear Axle it feels like a Cadillac. Power Steering is awesome, my wife absolutely loves that, like I said up above she is able to ride farther with less fatigue which makes it more pleasant to go out. I guess that I haven't noticed the diving in the turns when we're riding the 2-up, some of our trails are pretty tight so there isn't a whole lot of speed going on when we ride. All I know is the wife is much happier sitting on her throne behind me with the nice handles and stepped up platform foot rests and the IRS
We are also hoping that it doesn't warm up to fast all the snow runs out of the mountains and is gone. I'm glad that we don't have that kind of soil around here, it holds the moisture forever it seems. Foundation damage from that sort of thing doesn't happen here, we get plenty of mud as it is, but nothing that cause that sort of damage. That's part of the reason our trails open up so late, that and the snow pack, the forest service doesn't want any machines ripping the crap out of the trails.
Calving was pretty tough here this year as well, my cousin has a ranch and she lost about 50 head herself, was a bitter cold Feb and Mar this year, we had record setting cold temps all across the state. So far we've had a nice slow warm up allowing the moisture to soak in slowly instead of fast and running down the creeks and rivers.
Hopefully we won't get any major flooding.
TB rider, yes please post some pics, I talked with some friends that live in south eastern North Dakota and they said that they had a ton of snow themselves, 6 ft in their yard as well, and that wasn't drifting, where it did drift was much deeper, the farmers are going to have a mess this year getting into their fields. Personally glad that ours is going away slowly, been a long haul this year. Got Snow the 1st of October and never left, our back yard is on the north side of the house and we still have about 6", the south facing front side is melted off except where I had to pile it. Looking forward to the warm temps that's for sure. FF.
