Not sure how this dreaded "rake" is being measured, but if you count on the visuals (wheel gap differential between front and rear), looks can be deceiving. On a flat surface, I measured the ground clearance right behind the front wheel and right in front of the rear wheel and I got 6" - so no rake, either way. Am I doing something wrong? I know that was not incredibly scientific....

But then again, my springs are still settling. I will wait and see.
Generally rake it measured from the center of the roundel on the wheel to the fender. Then compare the measurements front to back. Looking at your pics it does look like you have much (if any) of a rake.

Glad you're still liking the ride!
