fantastic, and I was very conscious of the possibility that it would feel chopperish. I have long legs so the height is a good
thing, between putting the spacer on the top and the forks pushed through the top yoke by 40mm that's as much clearance
as I'm willing to lose, I'd like to raise the back rather than drop the front. I have and adjustable torsion strut and I'm going
to look at replacing the stock rear shock. It genuinely feels very good but needs to go offroad to see for sure, I do however
need handle bar risers.


Really love this bike, can't help but grin when I get on it.
