Someone gave me the book "Long Way Down" for my birthday I note at the start of the ride they are on new Ohlins, specially fitted. Half way through the ride these shockers have self destructed, in some God forsaken country. They have to get new standard shockers flown in.
I have often wondered why some riders decide that BMW can not make decent shockers. I cannot recall all the Beemers I have owned, but I recall the suspension was as good when sold as when first purchased. Previous bike did 130 thou before a truck reversed into me, current bike has 80 thou up. If it aint broke why fix it.
