Tiatool, shoot me a PM on which route you decided and I'll note any problems.

I would split into smaller groups when you get off 290.. depending on the route you are taking. Safety first.

Not at 140+.

I kidd....I kidd.... Yea...it's pretty straight. There are a few sweepers.

Yeah my bike is still lowered,, I talked to http://www.motorcycles-unlimited.com/ about it and they said i'd have to bring it in so they could see what needed to be done and with work and all I haven't really got around to it.

Instead I did a search on "disadvantages of lowering links" and found that there were really only two disadvantages, scraping and cost. Here's the article: http://www.sportrider.com/tech/146_0...wer/index.html

So I think I'm gonna give it a little more time before I raise it back up. I already scrape on speedbumps at slow speed but if i start dragging pegs (not likely anytime soon lol) that's when it's time to take it in.

Hey Smokin Joe!!!! Im going home at 5pm to get my bike and bring it back to my job... BMW at 1960/i45... Im gonna raise my rear. Do your lowerlinks have different holes? one of them should be stock height. As for the Front, loosen up the clamps and slide the forks back down to raise the front. We can do it but I wanna make it back to the shop asap after work to do mine too...

Lemme know!

hey that's cool ,,
i get off of work at 5:30, then i'll check to see if i have the different holes or an adjustable link and i'll let you know.
I'm going to the HAK meet at 7:30ish so hopefully i can ride over there at normal height.
