Ya, forget the down town stuff. I know what your wife means. My wife loved the rides and hated the congestion of Sturgis. We rode everyday for a week and didn't get to see everything we wanted to. Going for 10 ten days this time.
When I did the CHF I did not change the links. The fronts will have a lot mor angle look to them but they work great. Some go to longer links but there is no need. Just swap the links from the front hole to the back hole. On the rear it doesn't change the angle much at all. I did see in your post you has a 13 Newmar country star. I wanted a DP also, and really like the Dutch stars, but they are really high priced. We may go to the black hills this spring, before the Sturgis mobs get there!
