2. Is there a "test" to tell if you shocks are done? I have 38k on the originals and I guess the problem for me is they wear out so gradually, you might not realize they really suck. Also, am looking for a "nudge" to spring for some Ohlins.

thank you for your clever, measured responses to my queries
1. You're a damned fool if you try it alone.

2. Try Dan Kyle in the Vendors' Forum:
"Just sharing this quiet time is intimate, our tent, our bikes and our faces illuminated by yellow light from the fire. This is why we travel. To experience those rare moments of perfection of solitude of life."
