Thanks Claude , and my future will probably get a leading link eventually, this coming summer will give me more insight into what I need but if one looks at the Euro rigs and one wants a big front tire (traction and floatation) LL's are probably the best deal, hell center hub steering makes them seem simple.

At any rate this thread is about economical trail reducing mods, that leave the front fork where we found it on telelever style BMW's 1100/50, make the steering allot easier and I rode my bike as a solo and it didn't have any funny idea's and would U-turn allot easier, but I would not recommend this for solo bikes .
Another inmate has a neighbor with a 1150gsa rig his been building and needs a steering mod so I thought we would build a couple probably 3 some of our work.

Last but not least a great diagram in French but pretty much self explanatory, we're effectively changing the non existent BMW steering head angle.Thanks for looking if I can help PM me.DB
