Re: Shocks

This is what I hear from everybody: "Tremendous" difference in riding.  I
wonder that this is for the better shocks or just a result of replacing an
old shock to a new one.
The real comparison would be if a new OEM shock would be changed to a new
Ohlins or similar ones.
Thanks for the encouraging advise
