Yeah, I am in central Texas, so my tri-state area is Texas-Texas-Texas!

If I left my house, today, to drive to California... El Paso, Texas would be half way!!

Only for people who live there. I know lots of people from all over that have their version of "tri-state". Even HS bands go to "tri-state" competitions between OK, KS, and TX but a search for "tri state" shows that nearly every state has one. I'm reminded of the guys in Army Basic from the NYC area who seemed convinced that anyone who didn't live there must still ride horses and not know about TV, paved roads, or anything since 1885.


Sorry.

I have heard of Wilbers products previously, but have no personal knowledge. Anyone tried this product? Compared to Ohlins, for instance? Price comparable?

True dat!!! I've done the Cali-Texas and back many times and I always think they should at least divide it with designated "Welcome to West Texas", "Welcome to Central Texas" and Welcome to East Texas" signs. It is just such a loooooooooooooong drive. LOL

The price starts at $1079.00 MSRP for the rear shock. There is also a kit with fork springs for $1259.00.

Sorry about the confusion. We actually went to edit the post but have not posted enough here to edit.

They are available for every year FJR.

Thanks again.
Understood and I get that; all I'm saying is that 10% off compared to a whopping 40% off is quite a drop-off. I think more than a few members would be happy to take pics and even vids for a really good discount, like say...30% off. There's a lot of us that would be happy to review it and help you out with that and post it on U Tube. That's what I think at least.

How does the shock determine the difference between a dip in the road and added passenger weight?
