I know, right? And the guy is from KS which I think is just as cold as Southern Ontario in the winter! Obviously tougher than I am.

Lowering question again. If I lower the back end 1.75" with the Moose knuckle, is there a chance I will need to drop the forks more than the 18mm available? If so, would it make sense to get a bar riser/spacer to raise the handlebar so the forks could be dropped even more? Thanks for any input!

Half of the twist is in the cross-plate most bolt their "fender plate'' to, the other half of the twist is the sub-frame itself.

It did protect the blinkers....

Now see what you've done.
You've exploded the myth that all Kansans live in the middle of a patchwork quilt of flat farm fields devoid of Trees.

We rode the West bank of the Mo River a couple days ago. It was a great day!

Drop the front end more than say... 3/4 inch ?
You may contact the fender when the forks are compressed all the way.

Yes, there is a lot of that sort of mis-impression about the mid-west. This is Saskatchewan:
