Too many words for me, but was that a two day ride of 217 miles?!  hahaha  I remember a ride with some folks here, UP, you were there.  It was 600 miles or so and I was back home before dinner.  I can't even...

Yeah, could have been.  I've tried to block that out.  Have seen him since that day on that bike!  Seems like he's back to 100%.

Saw him at the Muskie bucket when Nivin planned a ride and didn't show up. He is still riding that same bike.

I fail to see how this could possibly be any fun whatsoever.

217 miles. That sounds like a good ride before brunch.

Is there a limit to the number of cruisers that you are allowed to pass at one time?

I have a sneaking suspicion that you will have no issues passing on your new bike.

We will see. It took me a few years to be able to ride the FJR to the pace I run.

Limited only by the oncoming traffic!?

Quite a pace indeed.  Have you upgraded the suspension on that beast?

It has Traxxion Dyanmics Fork Springs and a little bit different fork oil weight. I've watched countless hours of suspension tuning videos, and I think with what I got to work with, its dialed in pretty good.

I'm interested to know how the stock KYB on your new bike performs.

I got plenty more adjustment compared to the FJR. It's still probably undersprung for me, but I can make it work.

I remember the rear suspension on my 04 FJR was one of its worst downfalls.

Gen3 has a much better rear shock. I'd like to upgrade to Ohlins but with buying a 2nd bike I'm gonna wait.
