I only spend my overtime on motorcycling. Don't budget it into my daily life, just spend it on what I enjoy. Money comes and goes. Enjoy life while you can. If one day speed kills me, don't cry cuz I died smiling.

1000 to 1900 Euro (here in Germany), that woul be the reason for me.
And Wilbers is here more involved in sporting bikes as touratech. They are more a specialist for big travell bikes aka GS.

but: if you are happy - right decision!

Re the front springs:

I came also from a speed triple (02-04) and had change the springs on to hlins 10,5.
Last week, i did the change on my skr on 10,5 Wilbers Springs. Wow, what a difference! 
I should have done that last year...

@Sandie - the change was to "Tractive" suspenders not Touratech. AFAIK, Tractive developed the original ESA suspension, and everything I read about them is excellent.

I will be going with the Tractive option at some stage, had  good conversations with several suspension shops over here in the US and they all have recommended Tractive above Wilbers.

I looked back at the Beemershop site and in the description of the Tractive shock it says they manufacture shocks for Touratech. Hadn't remembered that, but interesting non the less.
