I cut the preload on the front fork spacers by 1" and installed a Progressive spring. This spring would be a little firm for my lighter weight, but with no preload, the new fork is nice and soft on small bumps but fends off potholes, speedbumps and similiar urban obstacles when it gets hammered.
Sounds good!

Pics available if you are a shorty-type and you are interested in creating a lowrider GS of your own. If I want to switch back, I'll have to have my rear shock lengthened, buy new spacer tubes and find a used centerstand.
Ah, just pop the bits you cut off the spacers back in and claim the custom
E-Z-lift centerstand is a feature, not a bug!
