Congrats on the ride. I like those too. Incidentally, I live in Dayton Oh, so if you need a place to rest give me a call. It's right off I-70. I'll get my number to you.

out to Pittsburg next week and will ride it back to Minneapolis. Hope I
still like it by the time I get home. Should be interesting. Probably
won't invest any more effort on the Gpz for now. Thanks for all of the

Yes, it helps,. So does a more triangular front tire profile. The clip
ons limit the max amount, I don't know about your bar set up though. You
can also cut shorter spacers for your springs.

So, I test drove an 02 Sprint ST this weekend, liked it a lot I was able
to step off of the Gpz and jump right on the Sprint and go so it was the
perfect A/B comparison for me. Surprisingly I didn't find it to be a
quantum leap beyond the Gpz, a little different but not as much as I
expected. One thing I did like a lot though was the way it tipped into
corners without a big shove on the bars....which leads me to my
question. Has anyone raised their forks with good results? If so, how
much? I'm currently running LSL bars, a Koni rear shock and Michelin
Pilot Roads if that's relevant. Any input appreciated, it may save me
$6800 or so.
