Agreed. I'm trying to do this stuff in the right order. Skid plate. Bar risers. Probably rear shock spring upgrade (not the whole shock, not yet). Rear luggage rack. That probably needs to be it for a little while.

And I'll set aside a couple bucks for mirrors and turn signal lenses!

I think i'm headed that route too, spring not whole shock. Budget is a bit tight lately.

I'm gonna order the 8.3kg/mm from ProCycle soon. Never worked on motorcycle suspension before, wanna give it a go together one weekend?

Carnage is almost guaranteed! (Lord knows I toppled over enough for everyone the last ride - found out that part of the reason was a stretched clutch cable - but the other 95% was likely operator error!)

Hey Brendan... If the weather cooperates, might you be up for some light, n00b-oriented riding around your place this Sunday afternoon?
