Aha inmates... Today my lowering kit was delivered. The following conversation ensued at my Daughters home in England where it was delivered.

Dad!!! You have a package. She yells out to me. I quickly turn off the tap ( Was teaching her how to scrub her patio stones) I hurry indoors, Making very sure i took my shoes off as i entered the house (Her zen point).

I open the package up and alas!!! My lowering kit.

Diva:
Bottle Automotive tire Liquid Gas Flooring


Which bike is this for she askes?

Me:

Oh its for the Expedition (I responded).

Diva:
The Expedition? Are you going away again? You only just got back from S. America .

My Smart arse:

Being smarter than her, I did a quick calculus. 2+2 =5

Me:

The expedition is a bike honey.

Diva:

Another bike!!

Me Defensive:

No Honey, The bike.

So...I regaugitated all i have read for some stupid reason hoping to make her agree with me. (Futile mistake)

Diva:
So where did you hide the bike this time?

Me Struggling:

Well.. I dont have it yet.

Diva probing:

How does it ride?

Me getting the gender right:

I have not ridden her yet.

Dad!!! This is an addiction. Why will you buy stuff for a bike you do not yet have nor ridden? This is sad Dad. I am begining to worry about you.

For some reason, I had a flash back of my diva growing up. All those years seemed to roll through my mind in Nicam Digital so i calmly looked at her and said.

Me:

Honey, Do you ride motorbikes?

Diva:
You know i dont Dad.

Me:

Well, Like you always stated Honey. Never choose to discuss a subject you know nothing about.

What do you know? She cracked up in laughter and she still is. My wife gets to find out that i am buying a new bike, My son is thinking (I hope that is not part of my inheritance) and i am thinking... Well done Man. Good move.

馃槀
Now i await the inevitable fact that i will be woken up by my royal highness at 2.am tomorrow morning when i am all confused and sleepy with the question..(What was that joke all about).馃槆

Anyways.. You can use my moves if you need to. Just remember that i hold the patent on how to introduce the Norden Expeditin to your family. Happy riding.

Hi, good story on the Expedition intro BTW....
I have oreder the OEM lowering kit too... but wonder how that will affect the overall prerforamce (other then the obvious ground clearance)....
Please share once you have fitted yours?
cheers
Actually, the kit maintains the original height of the bike. It lowers when you get on the bike to enable one do a flintstone when required. I will report back when i have my bike and installed.
