With regards to suspension all I'm having them do is set up for my weight. I was just mentioning the revolve/respring for panny.
Gonna test ride the MTS tomorrow after work methinks. We'll see how it goes!

I can't help myself and need therapy.
Ye and I bet you did something similar with the Fatboy. I spent so much money on my Fatboy, making it go faster, ride and sound better, that it dawned on me I was probably riding the wrong bike. My Harley tech said perhaps I should buy a ducati......

I AM torn on the model to get. I'd like to do 4 or so trackdays on it a year, and the PP looks SO GREAT, but the GT comes with SO MUCH MORE for the money...

Exactly, I wasted so much money on it. Got a decent price, but no where near what I put into it. Very happy now though... And I'm still wasting money! Good thing social security is so healthy

you could always compromise and get a touring. You can certainly do a track day on any of em tho,

That's what got me, it's also a lot lighter. I just bought bags for mine though. If I was going to tour more I would've gotten the GT. Both really nice bikes, can't go wrong. I think it'll fit your size better too.

Went for a test ride. That motor is worlds better than the older one. DucSea had the full Termi system on the demo bike and I must say I was impressed. It barked, but was still really smooth right down to 1500rpm.

Trouble is, I went to KFG Racing right after, and they aren't sure they can respring it for me. They may have to make a custom spring, and then hope the valving can adjust accordingly. The base model would be about 3k extra when adding a Penske shock and a GP Suspension fork kit.

The suspension didn't seem too bad on the test ride, but the track is a whole different beast, and I don't wanna have to worry about overriding the suspension. Kinda put my Tricolore trade in idea on hold while I think on it. :/
