Take care Greg, mention of a "rear end" may have an anonymous Censor delete your post, could be thought of as "sexist"Sorry guy's we didn't want to change this thread to a suspension one..........I think there is some belief that on the twins you are going to get a nice soft ride up front.........This is simply not the case, on the singles yes the ride is much softer. On both bikes the forks are much more 'Livelier than stock" without a doubt, and for a long time Vincent rider this does take some getting use to. The end result is that we still have a pretty small amount of travel compared to a modern bike, and this is where the compromise is, especially if you ride solo and two up without making any changes, this is mostly too difficult on these bikes. The actual comfort level on a Vincent is mostly in the rear end anyway, and that is why I came up with some fully adjustable seat stay suspension struts to fix this for my dear wife.......... .......... Cheers........ Greg.
