I am considering riding in the Rocky Mountains this summer. Just curious if anyone has any any performance issues. Some that I have thought about are:

- Thinner air. We usually rejet our dirt bikes to make them leaner at the higher altitudes. I would guess that the Boss can suck in as much air as it needs.

- Coasting downhill around curves. With the automatic transmission, I am guessing the "transmission braking" would not be enough when it's time to slow way down around those hairpin turns. Will the Brembo brakes be able to withstand the constant braking (i.e. Will they get too hot and glaze over?) They use to have a checkpoint halfway down Pike's Peak to check car brakes to make sure they weren't too hot.

Thanks in advance.
