I was torn initially between Wilburs and Ohlins when I put the Ohlins on my '07, decided on the Ohlins due to recommendation of a local suspension specialist in Austin, TX ... glad to hear you like your Wilburs. Have to say that hte Ohlins have treated me wonderfully during the 47,000 miles I've had them in all kinds of conditions. Do you know if they have the same capability like the Ohlins that Fibzzz mentions below?
