I just returned from a 4.7k 8 day ride on my R1150GS Adv which has Ohlins on it.

After I returned, the next day I jumped on my '07 R1200GS Adv and went for a spin. I thought 'What happened to this bike, the suspension is so harsh'. I felt like I was on a pogo stick. Every little bump was felt.

My new Ohlins for the R12GS Adv were supposed to be here yesterday. Damn, they didn't show up and I had planned the long weekend allowing time for installation and adjustment.

I'm one of those people who acclimates to the bikes suspension. After a while it just feels normal. Because I had not ridden the R1150GS much I was thinking the maybe I could live with the suspension on the R12GS Adv and had some slight misgivings about having ordered the set of Ohlins.

Not now. If you can figure out a way to afford them, go for it now. It is the best money you can spend on a bike.
