|What the Ducati M750 looked like in 2001|
|Rebuilt Ohlins shock with remote reservoir|
Now I've heard said that an aftermarket suspension revamp is the best money spent before any other choice -and recently parted with all of my money I was ready to find out. I set out on a hot day to hit the local canyon and everything felt remarkably not different than when my wallet was full. Ah well, I thought, at least now I can buy an Ohlins sticker and lord it over folks after I take 15 minutes to explain why they should be impressed; being a sporting motorcycle enthusiast in the United States can be tiring at times. Then suddenly, I had a first gear right-hand corner that opened onto a highway. There was a yellow light so I hustled a little bit and at the moment of transitioning from brake to throttle and in mid-lean, I felt from the pit of my stomach a very distinct and indescribable feeling that I could easily have doubled and maybe tripled my speed through the corner. And now I'll be cursed for the rest of my life trying to explain why this feeling is worth a thousand dollars or more.
