    Good for you! ... a bit off topic, but how do you like the fork brace? It's coming up on Winter mod season.

    Love the fork brace. You don't feel the weight (it doesn't weigh that much anyway), but it does help the front end feel more together. Getting the correct model for the correct fit is critical. The downside with an older model like mine is you have to lose the plastic fork guard extensions. The newer model fork braces have optional bolt on fork guards which I would recommend. I'm left with just the dust covers over the fork seals, so I haave to be careful following someone on a gravel road, and make sure to keep the fork tubes clean and smooth. In installing the fork brace (it splits in half with just 4 bolts) I just pulled the fork guards up and zip tied them to the bottom of the triple clamps until I took it to the dealer to get a fork oil change a while later. Instead of vacuuming out the forks as normal, they actually took the extra time to take the forks off and drain them the proper way, and took the guards off at the same time ... as an aside, the switch to heavier 15w fork oil is also highly recommended.
