Monotubes

Had an opportunity to ride a dresser today with monotubes in it,well needless to say that test ride will now cost me more money,could not belive how much better handling it was than mine,with very little dive under hard braking,so add that to the list of winter upgrades,this forum is a love/hate relationship.

2012 RG Vivid Black,contrast Anarchy wheels,SE air cleaner,cobra tuner,Thunderheader ,diamond cut heads and clys,Fueling Reaper 574 cams,this is just a starting point.
