Thumbs up

I was just going to ask about this...well, specifically:

What is the difference in 'feel' to the rider between the different handle bars?
By what I understand, its only the bars and shocks that are different between the two.
And $450.

I've read many say the X shocks aren't really that much better in 'ride' and 'feel'. Yes I know the X's are rebuildable/serviceable however.
What about revalving the stock X shocks?? Anyone played with that?
One could ride the SP shocks for a couple seasons, then pick up some used/rebuilt X shocks....or simply go aftermarket with the $ saved from the start?
Granted, aftermarket for 4 shocks looks like at least $1500 to $2000 plus...so $450 isn't going to get you too far there.

And finally, the colors, I honestly like the SP orange best. The red/black is nice, but I'm not paying a 200$ premium for 'color', get real.
