Was riding this morning and had a pretty scary experience on the Stryker and wondered if anyone else had experienced this. Was cruising along a straight stretch of road at about 70 mph by the speedo which considering room for error puts me at about 65. Hit a couple of studder bumps, small consecutive bumps in the road and the front end began to shake violently for a second or two. Now as an experienced rider I was able to hold on to it and ride it out but I could see a newer rider panicking and a pretty horrendous crash taking place. I am familair with head shake on dirt bikes and the appropriate measures (usually fork height adjustment) to take to remedy it and wondered if anyone has had the same experience with the Stryker. I'm thinking that the lowered rear (I have soupy's links) is throwing off the weight distribution enough to lighten the front a bit. any thoughts?
