Lost a Monroe
While on a ride yesterday the bottom shock mount broke on the left side. Someone was looking out for my wife and I. We were just leaving a restaurant with a group of friends, we saddled up and I raised the shocks without a problem. We pulled out of the parking lot and about a quarter mile down the road we rolled across some railroad tracks at about 15mph, I didn't hear or feel anything but all of a sudden the bike started bottoming out and the air gauge was steady at 115 lbs. We pulled over and found the problem, ouch!!!
One of my friends was riding solo on his One Day Old Limited and offered to let my wife ride with him as I limped mine 120 miles back home. And yes he followed and dropped my wife off at my house, lol. She did say that his new bike was nice, and IT IS, but she liked the ride of my 07 with the Monroe's better. So, it's time to buy some new shocks and get the mounts weld reinforced before they get installed. I have had my DIY Air Ride on since March and 7K miles later I want to go right back to the same ride quality.
One question I have is, are you guys mig or tig welding your shocks?
