just that our max i think is 37?
plus all the humidity...the only best place to be riding with jackets is if we were heading to Cameron Highlands or Fraser Hills in Malaysia...

one article (which I couldn'n find yet) was briefly telling that the steering dampers are essential for relatively short wheelbased, stiffer damped bikes and agressive riding style to stabilize the front end or prevent tank slapping.
same was saying that using them in a touring bike is only show, not functional.
my comment about the photo is : it wouldn't fit the standard bracket.

Tdm

Saw a beautiful '93 TDM850 for sale on Ebay in the states yesterday. I know that although the TDM was never popular in the states, only imported two years in '92 and '93, someone in the states now has a rare opportunity to own one. I ride my '93 everyday in Mexico and find it to be an excellent all around bike. Much happier with the TDM I think than I would have been with a Versys or a BMW F800GS for many reasons.

thanks for input gunpowder.. yes it is not essential, but once i tried top speed of the bike and after 180, handle bar feels so light and not confident to go faster. And i was thinking steering damper might help.

oh well, touring bike does not need to go fast and i am just happy with my TDM.
