While away at Silverstone for the MotoGP I had a chance to really try out the Big Burg two up. Now wifey and I a rather chunky so I know it would wallow and be down on power but I was shocked and dismayed at how bad the rear shocks were on anything but straight roads. I know the Burg is only rated for a 300lb load (rider + gear, pillion + gear and luggage but other bike with similar limits have not had the issues I did. Even with the suspension on 5 it would bottom out so easily it was dangerous.
So time for updated shocks. If I remember, Hagon will make you a bespoke set to your requirements. It will cost a bit but the alternative is getting a bigger bike which I can not do currently due to a back injury (the whole reason I got rid of my XT1200 ).
Anyone else done this?
