rough

Shocks

I have a set of shocks I bought for my first 1100GS. The rear doesn't have the hose or controller on it. the front isn't pretty either. You can have both of them for the cost of shipping. Jon

Thanks, Jon

Best 1100cc+ dual sport

Of all the big displacement dual sports which one would you rate as best and why? Things like ease of service, dealership support, dependability, fuel economy, after market parts, etc.

Thanks,...
