I like DSG! shame he's not posted many videos over the last few months... apparently the Canadians blame this winter thing on not wanting to ride... (coughpussiescough) :D

He started off after his mate, Snowcat, started getting popular and to be fair, from the get go, i preferred his videos to that of Snowcat... probably because SC is a bit of a whiner in general, but mainly because when he bought his Hypermotard, he then fiddled a bit with the electronics and the bike then started having major issues. i beleive he even pulled the video of him talking about the bike failing due to messing about so that it only looked as though the Hyper was unreliable at which point Ducati told him to do something physically impossible and KTM started to hump his leg because he has a big viewer base... thats what i believe took place from an onlookers point of view, don't sue me if it's not entirely accurate (I er, used to have time to watch a lot of youtube)


How is he riding it at 100+ with rpm below 6k or 5k in some cases?
Downhill maybe and the camera makes it look flat? :rolleyes:>:)

He said the S has a firmer suspension. I wonder if it's possible to soften the S suspension. I want a more comfortable bike, and I want the S.

One of the nice things about Ohlins is that they give you broader yet finer damping controls (more "clicks") than the standard fare. Ohlins may, however, user somewhat stiffer spring rates front/rear on the S than the standard model, owing to possible track day usage. Not sure about that. If you are concerned about a stiff ride, just buy the standard model and add the quickshifter and rear seat cowl.

my roads are bumpy and before receiving my SS-S i was considering softening the front but having ridden it out of the box I will be sticking with the current setup. Suspension is ideal for me.

I don't like the red. It's really the only reason I want the S. For the most part I'm just a commuter and a bit of a tourer so the QS and pricey suspension aren't really a requirement for my standards but are lagniappe for the price I'd be paying.

He sure likes the SS based on his review although I'm amazed that anyone can spend much time riding a Panigale or Sport Classic as much as he does.

I watched a couple reviews (can't remember which ones) that said the Ohlins were actually plusher than the Marzocchis. Interesting. I wonder what the truth is, now...:confused:
I have not ridden the standard version, but what i thought is great about the S ohlins is that it's really soft on the first fews centimeters, so it hide smalls bumps on the road, and then it's harder to avoid diving on hard breaking or bigger hole/bumps.

well, it's the better dumpers i ever ridden for sure.

I love your writeup. I don't even know who Snowcat is, but you make me hate him. Also your use of the word between the coughs gives the whole thing a special touch.

"lagniappe" for you maybe mate. The S is more covfefe IMHO. :wink2:
