WOW Wilbers WOW
I have been reading how everyone describes the ride on the LT as smooth and comfortable. I have, since owning the bike, found any slight alteration in the road being felt either through the bars, pegs or seat. To the point where I started to question my riding ability. If you read some of my earlier posts I have noted some issues.
Yesterday I installed Wilber shocks front and rear. OH MY GOD, what a difference. I ride roads that I have previously approached with trepidation, calmly. I find that my grip on the bars is easing and my confidence returning.
In a nut shell WOW. The transformation is beyond my expectations. I now have a new bike that I need to get used to.
I am looking forward to taking the wife for a ride. Last time out we bottomed out repeatedly and she all but refused to get on the back until I fixed the issue. I now feel it is fixed and some.
For those considering a shock/spring upgrade, do yourself a favour, do it.
One happy rider.
