not to hijack the thread... I've said it before, but again, the fork brace makes all the difference in the wind. I rode here in Oklahoma the other day in very serious gusts... (effects from the hurricanes to the south) maybe too strong to be safe, but the bike tracked like a champ. Before having the fork brace I about s--- myself in lesser crosswinds, feeling like the bike was going out from under me, and really hard to maintain a decent track and stay in my own lane, etc., all while in traffic. Too scary. I about pulled over and put a "for sale" sign on the bike. Since I got the superbrace, I know the wind is just wind. You feel it, sure, it's windy out there, but the bike now ignores it. It is a MUST IMO to have a fork brace on our bikes. You won't regret it. It has made my bike something to enjoy riding vs. being worried about the slightest wind.
MCL Risers, grip puppies and throttle boss, that's it. "as is" is great.
