  • Rocking a roadwing

    had some spare time Friday night so I went ahead and put it together. jack up to wheels down took probably 3 or 4 hours. Weather turned to crap yesterday before I could do too much, but just going around the block I noticed a difference. The back stretch is mainly repaired potholes and they still suck, but not as harsh. but there's an S-curve going out of the hood that always puts me in my riding groove on the way out - and the thing I always noticed about my roadie is that it corners very well for the fat turd that it is, but I could really feel the rear suspension being put to the test; the ass end seems to sink as your weight pushes down through the curve.. that didn't happen this time. I leaned and it turned. and I'm not talking high speed shenanigans, it's a 30mph residential street. but this shock has definitely affected how this beast is going to handle on the highway, I'm sure. Hoping for a nice riding day soon.

    Nice work! I've got a shock and RAP sitting in a box I need to get altered and mounted. Been one of those "to do" projects for far too long.

      The Roadwing on its own is way better than stock. Add the rap to it and enjoy the ride. You will be wondering why you didnt do this mod first. Highway rides for me are smooth.
