I went to get Dave's number  and ran into this.............

"July 1, 2018

Dear friends and customers,

Due to health issues, we will be closing Dave Quinn Motorcycles for the time being, and probably for good. We want to thank you all for your business over the past 32 years, and we wish you all smooth roads and fair weather.
All the best,

Dave and Maggie Quinn"

I saw that a couple of weeks ago on Facebook.  I wonder what we do about Hagon shocks now in the US?  I think he was the only distributor, right?

The nice thing about Dave Quinn was that you could talk to the guy and explain your riding conditions and he would hook you up with the spring combo that would work for you.

I know squat about suspension so that was helpful for me

Exactly, Wilcom.  He set me up for three shocks that way and I actually needed to talk to him again about adjusting them.

I've also had one start to feel a little soft and I'm hoping there's not a problem with it.

Bummer, as you said, he was good all around.
