Default What extra maintenance when living on bad roads?

I live on the worst dirt road in the county. Every couple years i gotta replace ball joints, and a steering alignment each year on my truck.

With my truck I find the faster I drive the more tolerable the ride, since I glide over most of the holes and chatterbumps.

I don't find this safe to do with my bike. Even at 5-10mph the chatterbumps are horrible. I feel like the bike is gonna fall apart on me, and find myself cursing the whole 5 miles each time.

Yeah I've tried to get 'em to scrape the road every now and then, but they do it very rarely.

Anyway what extra maintenance would you guys suggest I look out for on the bike. How about any suspension upgrades that would help?

Thanks for any suggestions

Buy a tractor and a box scraper.

brush the dust off your belt.
Clean your air filter once a moth.
Keep your tires aired up.
Get every one that lives on the road to go to the city councel and protest
