I'd love to try it on Ridgeline with that stout dual rear moto shock and the short wheelbase.......it would rule on tight switchbacks.

Doesn't look too stable looking at the wheelbase and geomerty.

The rear shock is about a foot too long throwing everything off so bad it's comical and I'm sure it's so stiff it would have only about 1/4 inch of actual travel. :P  Don't even think about hitting the front brake because if you do your going OTB hard!
