Fat Bastard from Murph
« on: March 18, 2009, 10:29:00 am »
For those of us that are on the large size (over 200 lbs.) and / or use their trusty C-10 as a pack mule......    I highly reccommend the Progressive "Fat Bastard" rear shock that Murph peddles. It is easy to install, less than an hour (+/-) with normal hand tools (17mm & 19mm socket and end wrench, plus a piece of 2" x 4" to slide under the rear tire) and I have a ton of accessories / aftermarket crap hanging on my bike.    I left the shock adjusted the way it came from the factory (just made sure the lock nut was tight) and the bike has never handled as well as it did, even brand new.  I did a 100 mile burn in yesterday afternoon and the bike never wobbled in the corners, BTW, corner speed has increased at least 10 mph.    Two thumbs up !!!!!! :)  Kurt & Sue Nordstrom  Spotsylvania, VA  COG 6049 & 6049A  VA & WV Assistant Area Directors
