Having lived with my new 2009 Bonneville SE bike for a couple months and ridden it in various conditions on various quality of road I have to agree with the general consensus that the stock shocks are nothing to write home about. Have seen lots of recommendations of the various brands to go for etc and that’s been discussed to death, what I am interested in is more detail about how they affect the ride and how it feels. Do better shocks and front springs smooth things out on bad roads (most of them in Sydney) when riding at usual speed, as well as improving handling in the twisties? I am pretty light (65kg) and find the bike lurches about quite a bit on rough roads and crashes around in a spine jarring way. Would a set of Ikons etc sort me out, could some people who have upgraded describe how the ride feels now? Thanks.
