Thank you Richland Rick

I just received one of your fork brace's for my Vee. Nice part and great workmanship

It took me all of 5 minutes to install this wonderful item and about 2 miles to realize the difference it made. The front is a lot more precise and the feedback is a lot less vague. I didn't realize how much the front end was moving around.

Thanks for another great mod to my Vee!

+1. I've had it for almost 1.5 years now. Great thingy. The Vee is like a tank behind tractor trailers...

+1 +1 I'll chime in here too. Got mine a two weeks ago from Rick and really don't know why I waited. The gyroscopic stability of the front wheel dramatically improves handling turns, buffeting and grooved or uneven pavement. 400 miles thru Shenedoah Nat Park last weekend was like riding a different bike. Fast shipping and lo-tech easy install too!

I have the fork brace, peg lowering kit, and mirror extenders on my wee. The bike is far more pleasant for me now. I appreciate Rick's great service and quality products at reasonable prices.

Ditto the fork brace, but especially like the mirror extenders--great rear visibility!

Yeah - Rick's fork brace is one of the few add-ons I've ever purchased that made a very noticeable improvement. It's superb!

What can you say about Richland Rick:

1. Quality workmanship - every item is milled to perfection and painted or coated. Excellent products that fill the niche for fitting your V-strom to you.
2. Very competitive prices - you won't find a cheaper or better pair of mirror extenders anywhere
3. Great customer service - Usually ships same day unless custom work is required. And occasionally you get a wonderful phone call from Gloria who takes care of the financials via a Mary Kay account if you don't do Paypal.
