That's politics, we keep clear of that.

You can get all the "facts" you want on that subject on Facebook. Most will have absolutely no grounding in reality of course.

I always, without fail, use the black round ones.
It also helps if they stay in contact with the road surface.

You need a Harley Davidson, they have soft supple suspension
however the handling leaves a lot to be desired
Most Italian bikes have firm suspension, its never bothered me

My first bike had girder forks and no rear suspension. Sprung saddle only, worked for me.

When just being able to ride a motorbike was exciting enough who cared about the handing or ride quality?
V7 Classic Black and gold is the best colour

Too right. On days like today, who cares? Just ride and enjoy Smile

PS. I appreciate the praise Johnno, especially from such a seasoned pro as yourself Thumbs Up
May dad used to receive complements for his smooth driving of trolley buses years ago, it must have rubbed off!
