Helpful suggestions. Thanks guys.
Yes, the front forks take air. If memory serves (it sometimes does) the max is 6 PSI. Guys on the nighthawk forum are almost uniformly against adding air. No serious rationale for that.
My problem is I don't know "good" from "gooder." I've taken trips, but have no basis of comparison. My first bike was a 74 Suzuki two stroke 250, upon which I also did multiple-day journeys. Compared to the Suzy my Nighthawk is fantastic in many ways. Could it be more so, and, if so, how can I tell?
I don't know any riders around here except a couple of HD guys. THey ride when the sun is out, in full costume/uniform, and look away when I ride by. The FJR rider I travel with knows about the same as I do about bikes. He likes stock. I like tweaking.
Just ride the bike? That's what I'm doing. But I do wonder if it can be made better.
Thanks again for the suggestions. I'll chase them down.
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
