As one with horrid shoulders (2 rotator surgeries on each side plus bone on bone) I sympathize with you. My days of tearing up a single track are over. As well as any track 'performance' riding. I can not afford any more damage.
The TW works well. Particularly good in sand/beach with the Big Wheel front end on it with my 220 lb fat butt on it.
I ended up going back to stock gearing as it seems to work well all around, though the 70 tooth I put on was pretty fun for a while. While I know guys thrash them, the suspension travel and suspension in general is really not made for jumping and 'hot footin' through trails. More of a 'slow as you go' and enjoy the scenery type of set up.
Good luck on finding one, and I will keep my eyes peeled for one.

These bike are popular a hell, long story short I was luck and snagged a 2020 with 25 miles.

Wow! Demo or preowned?
I had drilled the main on mine but bought a 'performance tuning kit' and will be working on the tune to get it a little closer to what I need.

No, Hubby and Wife got new bikes 3 months ago. She has NO endorsement and there is no date YET on when one can take class's do to Covid-19. So it went up for sale, 5 guys behind me, one flagged the add I guess.

Didn't want to run with out choke on so he took it back. They for got to pull carb off and re-jet and drill out A/F screw and set it right. So they did that and she runs like a Honda

No pics Flickr don't like me ? Will add some things to it. Thanks for the help.

I want one too. I should have bought one years ago. I need one of those in my garage right now. A wee bit wider seat would be nice though so it will fit my 68 year old ass a bit better.
