Default Bonjour from Québec

Allo I gilles from Val david and Sherbrooke in Québec province CANADA.
I am 63 years old and riding a 2007 ABS ST 1300.
I ride for 47 years now and still like it a lot.
I very glad with my bike except for the seat and the handling over 110 Km/H.
So I will search this forum to make my ride even better.
Why not add a side car...
We have a very short riding season up here so I would like to make it unforgatable each year.
See you on the road.
Gilles

Maybe that is when the citation is handled to him, for speeding.

110 kph is under 70mph, 68.35.

Canadian speed laws that restricted?


Suspension setup is important at any speed.
At higher speeds it becomes critical.
Set your sag on both ends.
About one and a quarter inches, 32mm.
A 07 model needs a fork oil change.
7 to 8wt works about the best.
