    Hey all!

    Like some of the others, I just stumbled onto the site a couple of days ago. I've been riding Hawks since about 91'. My current hawk is a 1989 with about 28k miles. Before that, I had an 88 Hawk that I bought new in 1991. Like the rest of you, I can't get enough riding in my life. I've owned other bikes, but I always come back to the Hawk.

    I just recently had my rear stock shock finally give up the ghost so I ordered a new Penske from J.D. Hord's shop. It took me almost a month to get over the sticker shock, but I finally decided that I loved riding my Hawk more than I love the $700. I guess this means I'll keep this one indefinately.

    Hopefully I can add to the mix.

    Welcome! Good to have long time owners around here to help us new comers out
    The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn't work and then they get elected and prove it.

      Welcome to the site!

      So was it worth the $700?
      What exactly happened to the stock shock?
      I still have the stock shock on my '89 w/ 56,000 miles,
      so i have been looking to upgrade, but I do not notice any problems
      with the stock.

        Stock shocks are just too spongy, man... at least set up a CBR900RR shock! The Fox shock for Hawks isn't made anymore, but I've heard good things about Wilburs shocks.

        I'm putting in a 1997 900RR shock (pre-1995 gives you a higher ride height than stock, but I often take a passenger, and I'm forward enough with the clipons), this spring. Steve Lenac's hooking me up with the setup. The shock itself only cost me $50 on eBay. Not a Penske, but I'm a newbie, so that'll do nicely.

          Welcome, again, to the forums.
          I am jealous of your rear shock..I bet it is DAMN nice!!
          I have been shopping a little for a pre 95 900rr shock because I like the look of the tail being raised up a little more...
          Anyway, nice to see so many people signing up for the forums. Im loving it.

              Looks like we have two BOTS - Tiktizpaw & Subworkif, both from the same IP address. Soul, let's get them out of here.
