Actually the best set up for a peninsula race is stem mounted like you have. Every now and then a 1000 is twisty enough that fork mounted works good, but overall, an especially to La Paz, stem mounted is the way to go. It handles better without the top heavy feeling and with so many fast miles of flat tracking it keeps the light in line with your rear tire, the direction you're going.
