What a great weekend! I just put a new racetech suspension on my Triumph Sprint, and was too sick of the boring, regular freeway commute, so I took off for a long weekend in the Ozarks & Northern Arkansas! Despite some cold & rain on day 1, it was basically 4.5 days & 1600 miles of pure fun! This is the first time I have swapped out a stock suspenion, and I can't believe the difference (wish I had done it 35k miles ago).

If y'all haven't been riding in northern Arkansas, I can't recommend it highly enough. IMO, those roads are better than anything I have found in the TX Hill Country or even Colorado. Very few super-tight hairpins on my routes (third gear was as low as I ever needed to go), with many roads cambered PERFECTLY. The pavement on every road I took was in fantastic shape- not any chipseal or gravel- and traffic ranged from very light to nonexistant. Loved hearing that triple sing up & down the hills! Such a shame to come back to the long, flat, straight roads of home...
