How good are the Monotubes and what is the best lowered settings (1" or 2") for riding on a '12 RG? Also, any recommendations for the rear is appreciated. I have stock rims on now, but I plan to put on a 21/17 combo soon. I want a low look, but dont want to jeopardize the riding and handling..

IMHO if you go 21" the tubes are a must! After checking around I went with the 1.5" drop and it is more than enough, again, IMHO. More and 1.5", specially when it settles after some miles the scoot will be slammed.
I also have a '12 RGC and ride almost everyday (weather permitting) so it was a compromise for me and one of the best mods I've done.


Hope this helps, laterzzz...
