        Forget the Corvair!...Anyone notice the red & white Cobra nose sticking out further down? Looks like MikeyC is a player.

      Can you take another photo Mike? We can't see what kind of wrenches you are holding in your teeth!

        I had to turn the shock over, I had the nipple down and was afraid I was going to break it off on a pothole. We hit some last trip that really bottomed us out. Slow speed, like 5 mph thru the redwoods.

      Awesome. Very similar to mine except all I had was the floor jack and I had it tied up between two antique tractors. Nice shop.

ID:	81623 I just install a road wing on my 06 last weekend and am well pleased. I mounted the adjuster under the passenger floorboard using an existing bolt there. The shock in the pic is the old one.

      I prefer not to drink while installing critical components on my bike, but the job might have went faster with a few in me. Maybe not a good idea since its been 5 years since i have had a beer, if i drank a couple, i might have mounted it upside down, backwards or added it to the front end somehow. I am still playing around with the stiffness but at the lowest setting my riding buddy says as he is following me my bike doesn't bounce any more, so i am happy.

        They are a nice upgrade, you will like it. It's noticeable when I ride alone but very noticeable when 2 up.
