Bungy-Spongy, there seems to be correlation of some sorts. I was having my regular, the best pork salad in LOS at the Xcentre when IanBungy pasted my bike and playfully pushed down the back seat. He interrupted my otherwise so pleasant meal with the good news: You need new shocks, they are quiet spongy. Ok, what now? Be diligent. Get a second doctor's opinion, Dr Joe, samesame diagnosis= spongy. How to get Honda Silverwing shocks in Thailand? What Ian didn't realize with his innocent statement that he was launching an international rescue operation through 3 different forums. Germany Forum =10 members offered advice, 368 readers. F....ing expensive US Forum = 11 members offered advice, 207 readers. Cheaper....but. GTR Forum= 24 comments, 222 readers. Cheapest but technical problems Up to this moment, Sat.8/28/10 7.40pm the race is still open between TonyBkk's or Alrikki's proposal. At least it seems, if not all goes wrong and I have to go back to square one = THE WINNING TEAM COMES FROM THE GTR-FORUM!
