I'm not saying that the Kevin Ash incident had anything to do with a bike problem. We simply don't know. I am saying more than one journalist reported unstable behavior while standing up and hitting washboard surfaces. As a probable Wethead owner, this concerns me. I've got 115,000 miles on my 2007 12GS. It's done thousands of miles of dirt, and it certainly never exhibited this behavior. We obviously need more input from more ride tests, both on and off road. I'm sure the bike magazines are probably in testing right now for upcoming publications. The new dynamic suspension also concerns me. It sounds awesome, but I still have a few questions on long term use. What happens on a failure, such as a cut wire to the shock. Does it resort to a baseline setting for safety or what. I'm sure it won't resort to no damping, but I just don't know. Like I said, I'll wait and see how things go.
