Damn, that looks good. You're a tall guy, Brian, so the extra ground clearance and height will work well for you. But I agree with the suspension improvements when making top heavy bike taller.
Not sure what I'll do to mine next (not much until I get off the Divorce Budget). But I want to try a fork brace.
That hockey puck works out well with the increased height. I'm just using a piece of 1/8 aluminum diamond plate to give me a larger foot on the side stand.
Hope to see you soon.
