Also, my bike isnt a high performance race bike, but these are a better option than my stock shocks and a slam kit.

Rode it 110 miles through the desert and up through the mountains 6000' up one last time with a friend of mine on my Triumph as it is suppose to snow up there tomorrow. Was 74 degrees at the base and 48 up at the top.

Pretty bike in front. One in the back looks like the crappy British bike I got rid of when I bought my twin to the pretty one in front. Are they still as uncomfortable?









But hey, it's got electric starting.
