    888 question

    I have been looking for some new forks. I got it narrowed down to either the 888RC or VF. The difference in price was a big factor. However I found a pretty good deal on a brand new 04 888R. I briefly read that they are basically a RC, but from 04. Can anyone give me some opinions of the 888R. By the way I'm getting them for 550 shipped. Thanks.

    04 888R would be a better choice than the VF. It's got HSCV dampening as opposed to the SSV or whatever the VF's got.
    cycle tracks will abound in utopia.

    I'd love to get a 06, but I’m monetarily challenged!

    Don't buy VFs, you'd be better off buying a set of Jnr Ts and welding a couple of blocks of lead to the legs.
