Good Price on Ohlins Shock

I see that Dan Kyle has the Ohlins shock for the RC51 down to $945. That's a damn good price for this shock.

08 CBR 1000 (sold)

No layaway, but that's a really good picture of me at Infineon don't you think?

If you already have a well set-up Penske I would not bother to get an Ohlins unless of course you want to take advantage of the aftermarket linkage, but even then the full potential is only realized on the track.

Doesn't Ohlins recommend the HO-204 not the 201?

Ahh c'mon, you mean this isn't LDHMart? wth?
That picture is pretty intense, are you braking right there? I'm looking at your front brake disc, looking like a little float or flex? I'm not sure, but looks like you're coming into the apex? Anyway, that's not a RC51 is it ??
