The new bike im interested in, is the GSX650F sports bike has normal forks ,meaning there not upside down. But my cruiser has upside down forks and it's also a budget bike ,same price new. So what the go with upside down forks and normal forks ,is there any reason for it ,to be one way over the other?. Or is its just for looks? And isn't it better to have the chrome cylinder hidden up under the fairing on a sports bike ,so it doesnt get crap all over it or stone-rock damage .?? I mean they cover the forks on dirt bikes with plastic, although that really in the dirt and bush. Cheers Sled. :?
