I will be in Hancock county Mississippi end of jan. Was wondering if there is any suspension shops with a 4 hour drive of Stennis training center. Looking to upgrade front forks on my 13 GS. If there is anything worthwhile I will pull my forks and bring them down. Save some money crossing the border back to canada.

You got the BMW dealership in Baton Rouge to the west and to the east you got another BMW dealer in Pensacola.

My memory may be fuzzy but...

Isn't the only thing you can upgrade on the GS front suspension is the shock? My 1150GS had nothing in the front forks but some lubricating oil. I put a Wilbers shock front and rear which helped immensely.

You're in New Orleans, yes? PM me your number. If I don't have to work I'd be up for something.

Race works in Gonzales is a Race Tech shop.

The owner is Shay Racca and does a nice job on the local MX and Enduro scene with suspension and motor work.
