On the "streets"

I just got my Koni STR.T shocks and struts installed. I only got to ride back home from the shop, less thn 10 miles, but what a huge difference. I didn't realize what marshmallows the stock dampers were. Already I can feel its planting better when starting off, firmer when braking and there is little to no body roll when cornering.

I love the honeymoon period with new mods!

What little bit I gave up in ride cushion I got a 5x return in confidence. Slightly firmer but completely suitable for street use. Still not as stiff as my wife's TSX, but that could just be welterweight vs flyweight
