Electronic v. manual Ohlins
The topic about replacement shocks has been “done to death” but I wonder if anyone here in the UK can vouch for this expensive add on. The problem I have is that I love the idea of much better stability but I have no way of proving it unless I wee to try a bike fitted with this kit?
I have to say that, whenever I approach 3 figures (on a German Autobahn of course), I find that I can get a minor wiggle from the front and a general sense of unease; I certainly wouldn’t want to change direction in a hurry!
With Ohlins fitted, what could I expect? Anyone in the SE of England want to show me ?!
