I don't get it

I see more posts of 5.5 going down and Socom going up than the normal way round.
is it coz people buy a bike for it's looks rather than its intended use or are we looking for the ultimate bike to do it all?

I for one am going to keep pointing my M3 down and my uzzi sl all over the place

Socoms go too fast to shoot on the descent while 5.5s climb too fast.


Maybe your head is tilted the wrong way.

Maybe the dude on the Socom is willing to suffer through the ups to kick the tires and light the fires on the downs. While the guy on the 5.5 just like to ride his bike anywhere he can

I think it is more along the lines that nobody needs to prove that the Socom is an outstanding descender and the 5.5 a good climber. Those pics show more what additional potential you get for your money ;)
