Finally doing the rear suspension

Heading off to Lake George on Sunday. To have the rear end freshened up. I had the front end done last year. Hopefully it will be as good as I'm imagining. Now that the breaks are fixed I can finally ride again. We've got a big trip planed for July

When I did mine I just went with a new 2013 shock/spring ass and the difference was more than just a little noticeable.Being that most of my riding is two up(even though the wife is only 117 lbs.)I wish I would have gone with a bit heavier spring.Bike only had approx 35 k on it then.

If I'da known it would last this long I'da taken better care of it(not talkin about the Wing)

Very cool, did you deal with John? I met him last summer at the CSBK when he did the builds and was Jodi Christie's crew chief, awesome fellow.
I'd be very interested in what you had done to the front, and what they suggest for the rear (if you go back top them, which I likely would). John really knows his stuff, kind of the Canadian version of Dan Kyle.

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!

The bike rides how I imagined a gl1800 would ride
It's fantastic now Marc in Lake George is an awesome guy with some great riding stories
Almost wish it took him longer to do the job. I was some glad it was done once I hit the open road

It's a great place to deal with. We had a chat about what the bike was doing and what I wanted it to do and he put a package together that works really nice
Taking my Pro S shocks to him soon
