That's probably a 10,000 miles bike..." Yeah sure. Then they jumped when I mentionned the bike had Ohlins suspension."It looks pricey. Is that going to raise the bike's performance? Is that a performance parts?" No, mam'. Stock suspnesion will last 30,000 miles top and will cost $3k to replace. This one is better, will last 30,000 miles but will only cost $400 to rebuild. Okay then. You're in... ;-)
