Will this improve perceived length, girth, or both?

But if your bike wheelies for longer than 4 hours, see your doctor or risk permanent injury.

Boxer, I do think you whine too much. We are all waiting, some more patiently than others.

Do we have an ETA on these things. My neurotic side is wondering whether or not I'll have mine for my two week ride through Quebec in August.

No doctor, just put IICE on it.

Genius!

OC temperatures were moderate this weekend (mid 80s) and I finally appreciated the genius behind the IICE Air's adjustability.

The occasional flat spots I noticed on both my GSA and X Country were completely gone. I guess I was truly in the -20 temperature range yesterday and today.

Now I know -- if most of my day is going to be >90*, I'll use -10. (YMMV)

Eat your hearts out, Booster Plug and ACCELERATOR! You aren't adjustable!!

My 04 GSA is very flat and weak at 4200 rpm to about 5300 or so. I am believing this will help that spot greatly. If it does, I'll be so pumped. The bike sorta dies there and if I want to pass, I have to be below 4000 rpm or drop two gears and get above the flat spot or else just pass kinda weakly.

I will be putting this on my 1150GS Hack. I'm pulling a lot more weight, as in friction, both ground and air. I am looking forward to see if it can effect a change on the over all performance. Even a slight change will be good.
