How much do you and Mrs B weigh? For a short ride you should be fine, but as I recall you are pretty good size. You might want to bump up the compression setting a bit.

give the compression damping some clicks up....my owner manual came with a suspension sheet that has recommended settings. I'd copy them for you, but I'm in Daytona right now and the manual is at home.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

B-man: The only thing you need to alter is the number of motorcycles in you garage. Buy something big for two up, and/or buy Ms. B her own scoot.

910R, S4RS Monster,'78 BMW R100S, Heritage Softail, Chrome V-Rod, Sportster 48, Kawasaki Concours 1400, '07 Ultra Classic with sidecar, yellow Vespa LX 150, a cool little Ruckus, and a very understanding wife........
