We just finished the first test ride. It was a little snowy, but we still managed to find some clear roads to test at speed. I love my setup. It seems to be working fine for me. Rick was pretty close with his guess as to what I would need. The only adjustment was to add a little bit of rebound. There was a huge difference on the washboards. Before my bike would slow down to a crawl when I opened the throttle on the WBs. Now it slows down only a fraction of what it did and holds. Rick's bike was setup with a much stiffer valving (Rick correct me if I'm wrong). I rode his to compare. For me it was way to stiff. It wasn't unrideable, it just was a little jarring. A few more rides and I think Rick will have all the kinks worked out.
