Took a ride up to JBJ Cycles today and got the Traxxion full Monty done today. First off John at JBJ is very good at what he does. He can answer questions and shoot the S**t while working on the bike and not miss a beat. That's another thing about their shop you can sit and watch the entire process. Your bike DOESN'T disappear behind some wall with a wait right here we will bring it back when we are done. Your bike Is right there in front of you the entire time not 10 feet away. They do have a waiting room if you don't want to see the gory details or need to get a little work done while you wait. Great people..

Now for the Traxxion. I have only the 102 mile ride home to work with so far and that was mostly freeway as I wanted to get the heck out of Dodge (Santa Anna) before traffic hit. On the way to get on the freeway you cross several railroad tracks and you can definitely feel the difference right there. The bumps are eaten up and less harsh. On the trip up the hill to Ramona there are some moderate twisties and I did notice a little more lean angle was possible. Not huge but there was more than before. I had the preset on 3 where as before it was on 25 all the time. I didn't bottom out pulling into my driveway either. This weekend I will get the bosses opinion as she didn't make the trip today.


All in all I'm a happy camper.. :cool:

:congrats: Kev

Ramona...wonder if that little bar where the local Indians hung out is still there. LOL Had a buddy that got his butt kicked in there back in 72...we were stationed in Warner Springs.

Not sure which one your referring to. We still have a couple bars. The Turkey Inn and Cheers come to mind. I would guess the local Indians would hand out at the Casino now.

Congrats on the new Traxxion mod...John does good work, I ride to Santa Anna from Tucson for most of my major work because I trust John and JBJ to do it right....It also gives me an excuse to ride across the desert :).
