A facility so secret, a satellite image only shows a Himalayan goat farm, accessible only to Hindu monks, lava lamp worshippers, and mental ward day pass holders, up for reintegration. However, an actual trip into the hallowed sands of this complex, reveal a far more sinister purpose: Testing the suspension on a 2018 RMZ 450. Ironing out the quirks, as it were. 3 riders assigned to this ominous task, each one in an isolation room between individual rides, to prevent a sharing of opinions. Justin Beiber piped in through the headphones, to eliminate any outside noise. That, and generate enough rage in each rider, to fully test this bike’s limitations. Hopefully, no one would commit Hari Kiri in the process.

Two bikes, with one set of suspension constantly being tweaked, to refine the specs that will be made available for
the masses. A gruelling day of torturing mind, body and machine, a sacrifice of epic proportion. A day of pushing the human body to the limit, to be followed by a de-briefing session, and a verdict on settings. After that, a round table meeting, to discuss recommendations to Suzuki Japan for ‘19, and a feast suitable for highly tuned athletes. Pizza and beer.

Testing complex.

The consensus at the end of the day, all riders give the thumbs up to the suspension tech’s work.

How do you expect to be taken seriously when your ears aren’t even tucked?

I just saw this thread. But is this Ione Sands ? I was thinking this was in California correct? Looks like a fun track. I had heard it was still private but may be open to the public one day? That still going to happen?

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

They are a high end private training facility with SX, AX, MX, Vet and UTV tracks. The lowest level right now is a $500 yearly membership and $45 per ride day or you have to step up to $350/month for unlimited access on the MX tracks. It's not a regular "MX track" like Club Moto or Argyle Park.
