Cool What a ride

Wow, took my first longer ride with new springs on. I've never ridden a bike that feels like this. Granted I haven't ridden that many but enough to know the difference.
Stiff but very much in control. Tighter all the way around. I rode for about 120 miles and felt like I could have gone on for hours. Pretty amazing bike. So much easier to put up on the center stand no more board needed.

Glad it all worked out. Are you packed up for Billings?
