Wow. I remember pouring over this article as a 14 year old, trying to decide whether I should add 'all that weight' to my bike... I did of course! I got the 3rd pair of RS-1's in the country. I'm amazed I didn't wear those forks out with the amount of times I cycled them through the travel.
Thanks for the memories Melvin! Have you put those babies to work yet? I've actually got 3 pairs of RS-1's now, but no newies like yours.
