He also likes to have heavy steering, and because he rides with his weight far forward, he likes his forks to be stiff with a lot of oil damping. Jeremy likes his bike to be very responsive and to have a lot of smooth overrev; it does not need a lot of power, but it has to have good throttle response. He uses a 1997 seat, which is 10mm lower than stock." eN
