I was convinced that my suspension was about done (as per the suggestion from all aftermarket suppliers that stock suspension is only good for 30 - 40K) on my 07 at 90,000 miles & I was shopping for something else to replace it, probably from Works as the only available system that offers any compatability with the ESA system.
When I started riding my new bike, it didn't really feel a lot different.
I even went to the dealer to ask about the possibility of the new bike being faulty or maybe the old bike just wasn't as bad as everybody was suggesting.
He suggested that the old bike likely wasn't as bad as everybody was suggesting.

Someplace I read that if it is nice enough outside to clean your bike, it is nice enough to ride it.
Most of the time, my choice is to ride!!
I don't care how fast or slow you go, please don't get in my way doing it.
