Put some money back in the economy

Just dropped $630.05 at Ted Porters for a Wilber front shock to go on my 1150 GS. I already have a Ohlin on the rear. Not sure how this combo will work out but I am sure it will be better than OEM.

KShow, May I ask why you went with the Yacugars over the Wilbers. I was looking at those to but they cost a little more. Thanks, Bruce
