Ron, I just had a thought. (I know mark it down on the calendar. )   Anyway, years back riders were discussing characteristics of using a car tire on a motorcycle. To show what they thought was happening they strapped a Go-pro under the bike and filmed it.  I hav a go pro so Iím thinking on my next loaded trip Iíd do the same and film the rear suspension. It will film for roughly 4 hours if I recall which should be more than enough. I just need to find a secure place to mount it.

Planning a trip in early Oct so Iím hoping to try it then. Who knows, maybe Iíll learn something

Volk, I hope so. Loaded I typically run about 8300 lbs which is 1300 under max. I canít help but wonder if thatís still too much and itís bottoming out. Maybe my leaf springs are weakening and need a leaf added? Iím hoping maybe this will give me some insight.

Does anyone know what maintenance is required to keep these (LS) operating a peak performance?

Bob is what we call our PC 2100, and he has taken us from campers to RV'ers and loving it.
