MotoQuest – A few words from a our favorite Motorcycle Touring Company

This from the President of MotoQuest Tours:

We have been renting Kawaski KLRs in Alaska for the past decade. Until last year, we have been relying on the stock suspension. Last year, we started installing Progressive Shocks and Springs on the KLRs, and WOW, what a difference. The handling is far superior: the KLR tracks on the paved tarmac much better and makes for a much smoother ride overall. Offroad? There is no denying the superiority of the Progressive Suspension on two-track and single-track roads. The KLRs with Progressive Suspension outperformed those with stock suspension, hands down. The real test was having several couples ride challenging two-track through streams and over boulders with no problems. Running with the caribou was never as easy nor fun!
Thanks Progressive!
