Mainly want to understand the running of an adv tourer. 1) what is the basic difference between the showa suspensions,WP suspensions and an upside down fork? Advantages & disadvantages of the three.
2)Why dont adv tourers come with alloys but spoke wheels? Aren't alloys much advanced and stronger? I have read that spoke wheels handle the dirt better, so if i have spoke wheels does that mean iam compromising the same for on-road (highway) purpose?
3)How do the suspension adjustments work (adjustable upside down fork)? How do i know what kind of adjustment i would need for a given situation? What is the kind of maintenance do these suspensions demand?
