Personally, i love it. Only 700 miles on the bike but i switch modes depending on the ride and if the wifey is along. I had full ohlins on the tuono and had it setup for me....once u are used to good suspension, its hard to go back. I find the stock setup very good. Maybe my tune will change once i load up for a trip, but so far, i wouldnt go back to standard manual suspension.

Salty, around 3200 for the pair.
The ESA was pretty good. The Wilburs when set up exactly the way you want them are very good. I think the ESA shocks should be used for at least 12k - 15k miles before you replace them. Just my opinion.
