Dumb question from a suspension noob - I do a lot of travel at moment (200-500 miles/day) and am always looking for something to make the bike handle better when loaded.

I am not the great gun many here are, but the two areas I find the stock suspension lets me down are
- high speed gravel/sand (say 80-100mph stuff) where I am looking for a little more compliance in loser/softer stuff and not that heart in the mouth stuff when you hit it.
- tracks that have a lot of big rock on them, embedded in the ground, I find this hard work if I want to push a reasonable pace.

So I guess what I am saying I would (depending on price) have a interest in some kit that would work well on bike that is used as a daily travel bike.
