So, Im still not decided whether I need a damper on my 950 or not. I have never used a damper on a bike before - so to some extent, I dont know what I am missing I can think of a few occasions where I would have appreciated the high-speed damping in the past - hitting a surprise rock/root/stump has left me with throbbing thumb or wrist. I havent raced or really ridden in the conditions (sand) where the low-speed damping would have been useful... So, I am still undecided. What I am curious about is whether, for this kind of bike, the two-way damping is a better option than just the damp-from-centre setup. Anyone have any feedback on this? Emig seem to recommend the 2-way damping for the big 950's... Also, I have read reliable opinions (from the likes of gaspipe et al) on the benefit of the 20mm offset. But I really dont know if I am a good enough rider to know the difference. Id definitely like to try that before pulling the trigger. Anyone in the UK have a 20mm offset Emig - and dont mind me taking their bike for a day?
