A cold chill ran down my spine as I began to type...
I began to wonder, have I chanced on a prevoiulsy unexplored area of the supernatural that had never been addressed on a site such as this.

Silently, I went about my business...
Preparing the rare chemical elements that I had this gut feeling about, that would bring this dark experiment to a friutful conclusion.

The wonderous golden liquid distilled from the pulp of ripe english apples, harvested by poor peasants with no other visible means of support, was added in a most reverential manner to the cheap alloy saucepan...Then, intoning the chant, prompted by the verse on the cracked and faded parchment I held before my tired eyes....Lit by the flashes of lightning as it pierced the dank darknes of my laboratory....I added a standard Suzuki rear shock.

With just a few stirs, I then retired to the corner of the vault and rolled a phatty big enuff to fell King Kong...

A few hours later, I defeated my personal trauma's and...
... space walked...dreamlike, back to the stove, on what felt for all the world, just like MickeyMouse boots....

Hmmmm seems like I'm on to something here:




*Note* Before I get any negative press on here, 4Fucksake this is meant to be lighthearted fun.

Beebs, sorry mate I can't understand wtf you're on about half the time, but my that is a delicious looking cocktail you've brewed up!
Ahhh. Yes, I feel the same way too goodfella. Truth is, I have invested so much into this machine that there is no way I can ever part with her now. The sum parts of the product far outwiegh the market value of the concept of the model for the casual ebay browser/potential buyer.

There is no way I can knock it all down and part it out piecemeal to predatory purchasers. That would be like....
<....Fill in your own lurid horror bit here...>

I love this bike, I beat the shit out of her on a regular basis and she shruggs it off and comes back smiling for more any old time.

Thats why I lavish all my spare cash on her, and she is good to me in return. Nothing amazin there then if you are able to understAND MY DRIFT.

Thing is, My bike don't look so cool as say, Sully's far out TL....
Or as polished ad Dougs 'S' version, but this motorcycle has the ability to become a sensory add-on for a couple hundred miles every sunny week end I can escape from work. I need everything in tip-top order and employing the best component parts I can afford to keep us both in one piece while we conduct our work-out.

I get home...I kiss my wife. then I get wasted and laugh.

Life is good :D

Yup, but if it's boiling in your front calipers you have a severe case of brake fade and will possibly enjoy this tasty dish as a hospital dinner.

I work with a woman that has his exact laugh. I think she's a 40 year smoker.

I laugh like Muttley sometimes :(
Then why the frown?

I mean, I have a permanent frown but when I smile the eyes say it all.

You dont get that aspect in a stock CF BB smiley. So when I'm happy I post stuff with cryptic headlines like this one:
.."Rudimentary Alchemy For Non Anal Retentives"...This way, I hope to connect with other riders who can see past all the smoke and mirrors and get to the nitty gritty.

I'm fkn deleriously happy cause I saved a bundle on a nearly new Ohlins rear shock, It could have been a Penske WhitePower or Elka but it's Ohlins and although every one of those previously mentioned is a well respected brand, Ohlins is the numero uno when its gonna come to final spec for my bike.

Now heres the rub...I know that every aftermarket Ohlins shock is specifically engineered to parameters of the type/model bike its goint to be fitted to. This means its going to be performing ok for the duty it's going to undertake but I dowanna it to be just a compromise, I want this unit with its three way settings, perfectly tuned for my fully kitted weight and easily preload adusted for carrying mrs BB on the occaisional pillion outings.

My fellow CF SV1K exponent and good friend dougZ has given me all the info I need to do the swap. Now I need to connect with another N.A.R. for specific step by step set up info as to the best way to go about high/low-speed compression and rebound damping approached in a personable and laid back way. (pref with pics) as the stuff I return on searches to do this. is like all 9meg pdf files and no fiendishly friendly tips and pointers.

So take a long drawwww and gimme a hand????
