Great stuff! It seems most people recommend suspension and front brakes. When you say the stock shocks are like a '63 Cadillac, does this mean it has great highway comfort? Can't say I' ve ever had the pleasure of riding in a 60's Cadillac.
This bike will be kept on the mainland in central California and has yet to make its way there from Daytona, so I am very interested in all matters relating to distance riding with this bike.
