You gotta love the web. Just about any question can be answered with a few key strokes. (Well, I still haven’t figured out who actually watched Wipeout rather than the Olympics, but that might be too deep of a question for the web.)
A few weeks ago, I stumbled on Randal Birkey’s site dedicated to his Hinckley Triumph Bonneville. Randy’s done a great job of detailing the upgrades and tweaks he’s made to his 2008 Bonneville – and the love for his bike shows.
I’m pondering changes to the suspension on my Bonneville – and I posed a simple question to Randy. “Any recommendation on what to get? I’m looking for a smoother ride on DC pot holed streets.” The response turned out to be a detailed blog post on the fixes he’s made to his shocks.
The answer is that after attending a Total Control Rider Training class called Advanced Riding Clinic (ARC1) within a year of purchasing the bike, and learning more about the principles of motorcycle handling and suspension, I decided to contact one of the class sponsors, Race Tech about upgrading my suspension.
Thanks to Randy for all his help. Check out is site for tips and ideas…suspension, tips, upgrade
