I'd have to agree. Even though I mentioned the hope for more sophisticated ESA, I'd trade that and a bunch of the other electonic gadgetry for the option of top shelf suspenders from the factory. As to the OP's question: Ohlins, Wilburs, Hyperpro, Elka all make good options. If that can be an option from other makers, why not BMW? Anybody figure we'll see the Water Boxer any of the IMS shows this winter?
