    Ideal setup for my bike...

    OK, before I go away to law school and become a broke student again, I want to make to setup my bike with the "ideal" suspension for my needs (twisties + track days).

    This winter seems like the perfect time to do that, so what would the recommendation be? I'll likely bring the bike to GMD to have the work done, so any ideas on cost are also helpful since I'll need a few months to stash enough cash.

    Thinking Penske/Ohlins type quality for both front and back... I'm a big guy (250lbs) so the stock setup is definitely not ideal.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Oh yeah, the bike is a 2000 Triumph TT600

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    Forks Retail $550, NESR price $495, shock retail $775, NESR price $697.50, labor to R&R forks, if you can't/don't want to do it your self, retail $125, NESR price $112.50. This month is best because in November I'm having my thumb fixed and will be out of action for a while.
