Ive narrowed it down to either a Nitron or Hyperpro, both at similar price.   I might be able for some discount from my friends at racefit so hanging on a minute.
The bike is going to air on the stiff side as i take Pillion 70% of the time and luggage 5 times a year.  Plus I'm heavy.
I'll keep you posted and pics when it happens

I have an Ohlins on my 2008 1050 Tiger, never let me down on long tours - two up fully laden...  Think maybe feeding it Talisker out my mini Jerry can flask and wrapping it up in a clean rag after full service was taking 'duty of Care' to another level... :033:

I wish I could get my wife to do that for me, as a part of her 'WDOC DUTIES' ('Wifey Duties of Care')  :008:
