OK, I've been meaning to ask for a few days now ... you guys who are putting on lots of miles -- is it my imagination, or is the stiff front end suspension starting to soften up, or am I just getting used to it? I swear this thing is taking the bumps a little easier now than on day 1.

I think it's getting softer. I ride two bikes and it seems to me that the gap between the two has closed.

Back to your roof ledge, Dave. We'll let you know when it's time for fun, which should roughly coincide with when you get one of these rides of your own. :D

I have over 1500 miles on mine and it still seems harsh to me. My VTX was never as harsh, even with the stock springs and fork oil.

Well, the front end is definitely stiffer than most other bikes I've had/ridden, but it really does seem to be less harsh than it was at first, except over the worst road bumps. I still may keep an eye out for a Progressive replacement set. I can't imagine that the stock springs they're using are one-off for this bike, so until/unless somebody starts marketing replacement springs for this bike, I guess it's time to start doing some part number research.
