Ohlins installed, and todays ride!!!

Well after finally moving the ohlins out from my bedroom and onto my bike i took a ride... cus ya kno, here in so cal middle of winter means 80*F and sunny.

What a beautiful day i must say!!!

off yerba buena... probably the nastiest roads in all of the roads in the malibu hills... sandstone peak off to the right... highest peak in the mountians 3300 ft above sealevel or something like that and its all of maybe 3 miles as the crow flies from the sea line, and off in the distance the channel islands.



Oh... and on my way back i watched a pod of dolphins swim just off shore.... a pretty damn good day i must say... sorry to all those who are frozen.

Now that i have some time.

Ohlins shock...

Yall were right... i shouldnt of waited so long, its simply amazing how much of a difference it made, the rear feels glued to the ground, no longer to i hit hard edged bumps mid corner and have the rear end slide a lil... she just soaks the bumps up and continues on.

It made me realize how bad the front is... so next step is putting the racetech springs in.

I am still trying to figure out why people say there isn't room for improvement on this bike. Good suspension transforms this bike and it doesn't matter how the shock mounts to the frame.
