    A year ago I drove the largest one across country. The ride was good, complete air ride, air seat, and sure brakes. The radio was Bluetooth which was impressive for a moving truck. Had a Cummings turbo diesel so the milage was better than the gas burner I used last time only complaint governed at like 75 I think? Drove it over 1800 miles and came out hundreds cheaper than uhaul, not to mention I also towed the full car trailer behind it....

    Penske showed up today. Half the weight of the stock shock. I had to remove the fan or cut it up so the shock would fit. I removed it. Don't think it necessary for a track bike anyway. I'm now ready for the 10th. Sears Point once more.

    Shock body is much larger than the stock unit. Now it's easy to keep an eye on the header flange bolts.
